WindowsError installing a package with a non-ascii filename #704
It's a bug in python, which appears to have a long sordid history. The failure is happening because a bytestring is being passed to
…r in the filename of a zip sdist. Ref #704.
This reverts commit 8579495. As we can see on pypa#709, this breaks many things (easy_install C extensions, all py3.5 tests, run with LANG=C). So instead of fixing in a hurry all new bugs due to this, I propose to revert this commit until all downsides of this change have been investigated.
