    20  - if you're using svn 1.6.x and setuptools prior to **0.6c10**, be sure to apply the latest patch in setuptools-issue:64.
    21  - if you're using Python 2.6 and setuptools prior to **0.6c10**, be sure to also apply the `Python26.warnings.diff` patch from setuptools-issue:56.
     20 - you shouldn't be using setuptools prior to **0.6c10** (if so, look for the notes in an [./@9 earlier version] of this page
     21 - if you're using Python 2.4 (still supported for 0.12-stable) or Python 2.5, you won't be able to use a recent version of setuptools. You can still install an earlier version:
     22    - grab and execute the older [http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py ez_setup.py] script, you'll then have 0.6c11, which is enough if you're installing from a trac checkout made with Subversion 1.6 but problematic for newer Subversion version
     23      - with easy_install from 0.6c11, install the latest Python 2.4/2.5 compatible version of the new setuptools: `easy_install -U setuptools==1.4.2`
     24
    2225 - if you're using setuptools versions **5.4** through **5.6**, the environment variable `PKG_RESOURCES_CACHE_ZIP_MANIFESTS` should be set, otherwise the performance of Trac will be significantly degraded.
    2326  - Linux: `$export PKG_RESOURCES_CACHE_ZIP_MANIFESTS=1`
