Bug Description

This might or might not be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/zc.buildout/+bug/85604

If you use a recipe with different extra requires, then the second extras aren't installed, because buildout only checks whether the recipe itself is installed (which is true) but doesn't check the extras (or pkg_resources doesn't, not sure).


parts = template1 template2

recipe = collective.recipe.template
inline =
output = template1.txt

recipe = collective.recipe.template[genshi]:genshi
inline =
output = template2.txt

Because collective.recipe.template is already installed, the extra_requires Genshi isn't installed.

At least for me, running "bin/buildout install template2" works fine.

Also, after having installed the individual part, and hence having Genshi in the eggs-directory, running the whole buildout won't work yet.

This bug is twofold:

 1) The collective.recipe.template package doesn't specify that the genshi entry point requires the genshi extras. This is easily resolved by adding "[genshi]" to the end of the entry line in setup.py - I will shortly have commit access to make this change.

 2) Buildout does not check a recipe's extra requirements before installing or updating, so if the main project for the recipe is installed, the extras will not be installed. I have attached a patch to fix this point.

That patch is for buildout version 1.5.2.

Previous patch interpreted the names of extras as requirements which is incorrect. This patch is better and also includes a test.

Thanks for looking into this and providing the patch!

Please don't change anything in collective.recipe.template though. I created a package to work around the issue (collective.recipe.genshi) and changing collective.recipe.template would break it for older buildouts. So please only fix zc.buildout but don't do anything in collective.recipe.template.
