A Note Regarding Dependencies
-----------------------------
 
If the project *containing* your distutils/setuptools extension(s) depends on
any projects other than setuptools, you *must* also declare those dependencies
as part of your project's ``setup_requires`` keyword, so that they will
already be built (and at least temprorarily installed) before your extension
project is built.
 
So, if for example you create a project Foo that includes a new file finder
plugin, and Foo depends on Bar, then you *must* list Bar in both the
``install_requires`` **and** ``setup_requires`` arguments to ``setup()``.
 
If you don't do this, then in certain edge cases you may cause setuptools to
try to go into infinite recursion, trying to build your dependencies to resolve
your dependencies, while still building your dependencies. (It probably won't
happen on your development machine, but it *will* happen in a full build
pulling everything from revision control on a clean machine, and then you or
your users will be scratching their heads trying to figure it out!)

Release Notes/Change History
----------------------------
 
0.6final
0.6c11
 * Fix "bdist_wininst upload" trying to upload same file twice
 
0.6c10
 * Fix for the Python 2.6.3 build_ext API change
 
 * Ensure C libraries (as opposed to extensions) are also built when doing
   bdist_egg
 
 * Support for SVN 1.6
 
0.6c9
 * Fixed a missing files problem when using Windows source distributions on
   non-Windows platforms, due to distutils not handling manifest file line
   endings correctly.
 
 * Updated Pyrex support to work with Pyrex 0.9.6 and higher.
 
 * Minor changes for Jython compatibility
 * Minor changes for Jython compatibility, including skipping tests that can't
   work on Jython.
 
 * Fixed not installing eggs in ``install_requires`` if they were also used for
   ``setup_requires`` or ``tests_require``.

 * Added a warning if a namespace package is declared, but its parent package
   is not also declared as a namespace.
 
 * Support Subversion 1.5
 
 * Removed use of deprecated ``md5`` module if ``hashlib`` is available
 
 * Fixed ``bdist_wininst upload`` trying to upload the ``.exe`` twice
 
 * Fixed ``bdist_egg`` putting a ``native_libs.txt`` in the source package's
   ``.egg-info``, when it should only be in the built egg's ``EGG-INFO``.
 
 * Ensure that _full_name is set on all shared libs before extensions are
   checked for shared lib usage. (Fixes a bug in the experimental shared
   library build support.)
 
 * Fix to allow unpacked eggs containing native libraries to fail more
   gracefully under Google App Engine (with an ``ImportError`` loading the
   C-based module, instead of getting a ``NameError``).
 
0.6c7
 * Fixed ``distutils.filelist.findall()`` crashing on broken symlinks, and
   ``egg_info`` command failing on new, uncommitted SVN directories.

 * Initial release.
