Description (last modified by cmlenz) (diff)

It is folly to accept new versions of packages without testing them first. But a setuptools call, via easy_install, to install a specific, tested version of Genshi (0.4.4) fails with the message that an appropriate package could not be found.

root@ubuntu:~# easy_install "genshi==0.4.4"
Searching for genshi==0.4.4
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/genshi/
Couldn't find index page for 'genshi' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/
Reading http://pypi.python.org/simple/Genshi/
Reading http://genshi.edgewall.org/
Reading http://genshi.edgewall.org/wiki/Download
No local packages or download links found for genshi==0.4.4
error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('genshi==0.4.4')


Please be kind to the community and allow for specifying known versions.

Added links to the 0.4.4 releases back to the download page so that easy_install can find them. Thanks!
