(Migrated) Conda/Anaconda experience?

(This message has been automatically imported from the retired mailing list)

Hi there,

we are currently fighting a sour and tough battle with setuptools -
appears there have been some changes recently that totally broke our
build - no new binary packages can be created.

If you only use precompiled RPM/DEB ones from
https://zato.io/downloads.html, it won’t trouble you.

But if you follow GitHub - building new ones doesn’t work right now - it
is 100% related to this point
https://pythonhosted.org//setuptools/history.html#id3 but it’s unclear
what it is exactly.

This is the sixth or so time it happens and I’m finally very much
interested in starting to use Conda and Anaconda …

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/conda

… and I’m wondering if anyone perhaps has experience in using it? Any
gotchas to watch out for? Does it work smoothly for you? What is your
opinion?

Just FYI - this is now resolved. The culprit were dependencies with
versions in the form of 1.3-5 instead of 1.3.5.

Even though PEP 440 has been around for for some time, the dependencies
turned out to be problematic only now.
