A few minutes after my first message, the package was removed from pypi and re-added later. After that, I was able to install it in a fresh virtualenv.
Unfortunately, I didn't succeed to port my old fabfile to the brand new fabric2 API. So I stopped to work on it at the moment, and will re-try as soon as I have more time
It looks there is indeed a packaging problem.
On PyPI the Python 2 version is distributed as a wheel package while installing from Python 3 downloads a tar.gz that is missing the LICENSE file referred in setup.cfg.
pip as default tries to build a wheel from the downloaded tar.gz and fails for the missing file.
Right now the way to obtain a clean install is to pip install --no-cache-dir to force pip to install from setup.py bypassing the wheel build step.
I hope that Jeff will distribute a .whl for Python 3.
When installing the recent 2.0 release, the install fail when building wheel:
Thanks for the amazing work !
