Re: [pygame] pygame1.9 does not install in ubuntu from easy_install

I found the easy_install magic link.  So, it's working again.

using easy_install with subversion works fine (as fine as easy_install would normally work).
easy_install svn://seul.org/svn/pygame/tags/release_1_9_0release

That is using the 1.9.0release tag which was made for the 1.9.0 release.

Note, that easy_install is not a supported install mechanism - and only works if you've got a good build environment setup for pygame.

There's probably some way I can put a link on pypi like this...
 which will make easy_install install from there instead of from the tar.gz.

Anyone know the correct easy_install url to use?

Same here. It seems "readme.html" was not included in the tarball but is required by "setup.py"

oh bugger.  For some reason readme.html wasn't in the MANIFEST.in, so the file wasn't included.  Well it hasn't been in the MANIFEST.in for a very long time...

Might have to do another quick release.  I've started already, but it won't be for another few+ days - I'll need to go over it again to make sure any other files aren't also missing.  Also I might as well take this opportunity to script a few of the release things to save some time in the future - incase other speedy releases need to be done.
