#1618 closed defect (fixed)

reStructuredText doesn't work with docutils 0.3.10

Reported by: dserodio@… Owned by: Christopher Lenz
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.8.2
Component: general Version: 0.8.1

I didn't have docutils installed, so I went to their site and downloaded the "lastest version". This version is labelled as 0.3.10, and causes whe following error (e.g., on WikiRestructuredText):

Docutils version >= 0.3.3 required, 0.3.10 found

This is caused by the fact that the version numbers are compared as strings. The attached patch fixes this by using distutils.version.LooseVersion for comparing version numbers.

I'm setting the milestone to 0.8.2 because it's a really simple patch, localized to reStructuredText support, and I don't think it could introduce buggy side-effects, but feel free to re-schedule it.
