Pip not uninstalling previous versions when installing directly from a wheel path/url #1825
Reproducible with pip 1.5.6 as follows:
Contents of setup.py used:
from setuptools import setup setup( name='Foo', version='1.0.0' )
The previous version remains in site-packages and "Foo" can be uninstalled twice.
yes, I can confirm this.
btw, installing directly from sdist does not have this problem.
I'll take a look at fixing this.
