Description Ville Skyttä 2006-04-30 08:50:22 UTC
Is the install time dependency (Requires:) on python-setuptools in python-kid
actually needed for something?  Quick grepping around doesn't reveal anything,
and for example repoview runs quite happily without python-setuptools installed.

Comment 1 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2006-05-01 18:05:37 UTC
It's required, sadly -- take a look at /usr/bin/kid*. I could have patched it
out, but it's easier to just pull in python-setuptools, since they are going to
be increasingly requried by python egg packages anyway.

Please reopen if that doesn't address your concern.

Oh, I missed that /usr/bin stuff.  No problem then, sorry about the noise.
