19.1 circular dependencies #178
With the 19.1 release the package now depends on attrs, which in turn depends directly on setuptools. Packaging on its own is a direct dependency of setuptools as well. This means when you are bootstraping the packages it can't be done properly.
Looking at attrs they rely on find_packages and few other tiny features of setuptools 40+ so I don't think it is possible to build them just with distutils...
Could maybe tags became optional feature? That would be good enough for us to not hard-require it...
