If I install into my virtualenv using the github head version:
pip install git+git://github.com/kennethreitz/tablib.git
Then python can't find xlrd:

This works fine with the normal pip install version.
This project is in a bit of a crisis state — it's really useful, and I use regularly. However, I wrote it several years ago and haven't touched it since. In order to get the project into a stable state I'm closing all issues and pull requests to get a "fresh slate"
Don't take this as aggressive — it's just necessary for the project to make any progress any time soon (it's pretty clear the project is effectively unmaintained at the moment). Great things to come! Please watch the GitHub logs and feel free to re-open this discussion soon. I just need to really it into a good state first.
