#7142 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Set pkg_resources extraction path manually

We should use pkg_resources.set_extraction_path instead of requiring PYTHON_EGG_CACHE to be set in the environment. This would allow moving this setting into trac.ini. On a related note, it would be nice to set a saner default than ~/.python-eggs, perhaps to tempfile.gettempdir().

Doesn't the extraction path need to be set prior to entering Trac code if Trac is installed as an egg? Then again, PYTHON_EGG_CACHE (and related directives) seem to be working well these days.

pkg_resources.set_extraction_path is used since [7440] (2008-Aug-04, a short while after this ticket was opened).

I suggest closing as wontfix.

If Trac is installed as a egg file, only PYTHON_EGG_CACHE environment can specify extraction path (comment:1).

Also, if TRAC_ENV_PARENT_DIR (multi-project) is used, the extraction path is shared between all Trac environments. After moving the setting to trac.ini, same value must be configured in all trac.ini. That's redundant.
