Installation from source

Q: Why do I get NameError: global name 'log' is not defined when trying to use setup.py?

../trunk/$ python setup.py egg_info
running egg_info
  File "build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/setuptools/svn_util.py", line 55, in get_sections
NameError: global name 'log' is not defined

You're most likely working from a Subversion 1.7 checkout and you're using a too old setuptools package (e.g. /setuptools-0.7a1dev_r66608).

See #7598. Upgrade to a newer setuptools, downgrade to svn 1.6.x, or use distribute.
