setuptools is a Python module that helps to compile, distribute and install Python packages by wrapping them into "egg"s. Eggs contain additional information to process dependencies, etc. Trac plugins can be packaged as eggs since 0.9. Starting with 0.11 Trac itself can also be packaged using setuptools.
Installed setuptools version can be checked with the following commands (should work for other Python packages too):
$ python Python 2.3.5 >>> import setuptools >>> setuptools.__version__ '0.7a1'
Setuptools can be installed using bootstrap script from PEAK:
wget http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py python ez_setup.py rm ez_setup.py
setuptools include "easy_install" script for convenient installation of packages found on Python Package Index including Trac with all necessary dependencies.
$ python -m easy_install Trac
