Subject Re: [VOTE] Release PyLucene 2.9.1-1

Signature & md5 check out.  I got everything working and ran my usual
basic "index & search first 100K docs from wikipedia" smoke test just fine.

But a couple questions/issues:

  * Is it expected that jcc_ver = '2.4.1' in jcc/  (Are/were
    we trying to track Lucene's versioning, here?  I wouldn't think
    so, in general, but since that looks like a Lucene version, I'm

  * From Makefile, it looks like you're exporting HEAD of Lucene's 2.9
    branch (instead of the 2.9.1 tag).  Is that intended?  Also, the
    tar file has Lucene's sources (but in prior releases, I think, you
    let "svn export" retrieve them for me).

  * I'm using Python 2.6.4 (32 bit), which I downloaded from and installed myself.

    I hit this:

Traceback (most recent call last):

line 122, in _run_module_as_main
    "__main__", fname, loader, pkg_name)

    raise ImportError, 'setuptools is required when using --shared'
ImportError: setuptools is required when using --shared

    Removing --shared from Makefile seems to have worked around it.
    I'm assuming this is something silly about my env!
