stable-requirements.txt requires BeautifulSoup>=3.0.8.

I installed via pip and got version 4.0 of this library. Trying to do my first syncdb yields the error

ImportError: No module named BeautifulSoup

Looking at the installed-files.txt in the BeautifulSoup egg-info shows


Launching python and typing import bs4 succeeds.

I changed the first line of stable-requirements.txt to BeautifulSoup==3.2.0 and reinstalled. Everything worked all right.
