I'm using a dedicated python 2.7.5 and buildout to install Plone, but because setuptools is not installed in that python, I get the following error for longtest & prerelease:

/dev/Plone/Development/project/src/visualtitle$ ../../bin/longtest
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 16, in <module>
    from setuptools import setup
ImportError: No module named setuptools
ERROR: Error generating long description.

Are you using the very very latest version?

We released 3.51 just a few hours ago and if everything's OK, it solves exactly the problem you're having :-)

@djowett

Thanks for the prompt response - I wasn't & now I am.

It DOES work for prerelease (though it asks me about MANIFEST.in twice)
longtest still DOESN'T work, though I'm sure I can get along fine without it.

@djowett, can you try 3.52? Longtest should work, too, now. :-)

@djowett

Yep, that seems good, asks me to install docutils etc

Yeah! Thanks for reporting back.
