recently I got a bug report regarding doit (packaged in python3-doit):
"setuptools is required at runtime"
The obvious fix is to add python3-setuptools as a BR for python3-doit.
I suppose you meant: As runtime requires.
My question here is if I should report this upstream?
Not needed. Upstream installs via pip. You already get pkg_resourcess
(setuptools) and no upstream has setuptools in their requires.
If this requirement were in the dependencies of the package the auto
would had picked initially.
If the auto generator is capable of seeing an console_script entry point (hint,
yes it is) they should add setuptools to the required packages.
We should open a RFE bug for this (on it).
