Installation of cubicweb with pip 1.5 will fail to fetch and install yapps.
This is because pip 1.5 deprecated processing of dependency_links ,
and this option is used by the rql package to advertise the logilab
repackaging of it .
Although it is re-activable by running pip with the
"--process-dependency-links" argument, it cannot be considered as a long
term solution because the feature will be completely removed in pip 1.6.
The sanest solution I can think of would be to create a yapps project on
pypi and upload a pip-friendly archive. That would settle the issue for
Since Amit Patel has no plans to work on yapps , I suggest we make a
pull-request with the setup.py and all things necessary for publishing
on pypi, and ask him to upload it to pypi, which is why I took the
liberty to CC him (Amit, I hope you won't mind).
I can take care of PR and the upload (only "yapps2" exists on pypi, not
"yapps") if every one is OK with the proposed solution.
I would like to hear your points on that so we can solve this issue for
