Description Eric Seidel (no email) 2009-12-16 15:09:08 PST
bugzilla-tool should not require users to install mechanize

First step is to centralize our handling of mechanize imports.
Second step is to make a magical way to have it auto-downloaded.

(Another alternative would be to check in a copy of mechanize, but it's *huge* and we don't have a ThirdParty directory to check it in to.)  This lazy-download approach is slightly more error-prone than checking in a copy, but should still work.

I'll re-open the bug after the cq closes it. :)

I'm going to be a hypocrite and re-use this bug for the second step if I can ever get it working...

So looks like step two could be done via easy_install with a --prefix directory.

Something like this:

PYTHONPATH=./webkit_module_cache/lib/python2.5/site-packages easy_install --prefix ./webkit_module_cache mechanize

and then we would edit sys.path to include ./webkit_module_cache

I think we can use http://pypi.python.org/pypi/autoinstall/0.1a2 to solve this problem.  I've emailed the author about licensing.

I've spoken with the autoinstall.py author.  His intent was to make it clear that it is available under a BSD license, however he's agreed to release a new version which makes that explicit.  I also have a local patch to send him as well.

A new autoinstall module has been released:
which clarifies that it's BSD licensed code.  This should be easy to finish, I just need to take a few moments and do it.
