Developing buildout itself
When you're developing buildout itself, you need to know two things:
- Use a clean python *without* setuptools installed. Otherwise many tests
will find your already-installed setuptools, leading to test differences
when setuptools' presence is explicitly tested.
- Don't bootstrap with ``python bootstrap/`` but with ``python``.
For your convenience we provide a Makefile to build various Python versions
in subdirectories of the buildout checkout. To use these and run the tests
with them do::
make PYTHON_VER=2.6 build
make PYTHON_VER=2.6 test
make PYTHON_VER=2.7 build
make PYTHON_VER=2.7 test
make PYTHON_VER=3.2 build
make PYTHON_VER=3.2 test
The actual Python compilation is only done once and then re-used. So on
subsequent builds, only the development buildout itself needs to be redone.
