In issue #23911 I worked around a bug [1] in pkg_resources (setuptools) which caused test_venv to fail when I split out importlib._bootstrap_external.  That bug has now been fixed so we just(?) need to update the version of pip we're bundling and remove the hack I put in as a workaround (see msg242440).

Would we be okay fixing this in 3.5 as well?  I ask because I'm not familiar with the constraints we have on what pip is bundled.

Donald updated 3.5 to pip 7 for the 1st beta, so the relevant fix may have already been included.

I'll see if that does it.

@Larry, would you be opposed to dropping the hack for beta 3?  That would mean just deleting the last 2 lines in Lib/importlib/

Sounds okay in theory.  Is the bug in question now tested in our regression suite?
msg244697 - (view) Author: Eric Snow (eric.snow) * (Python committer) Date: 2015-06-02 21:51
Yep. test_venv failures is how I found the problem in the first place.

Then you may fire when ready.

Hmm.  Looks like the fix in setuptools/pkg_resources is 17.0. [1]  The bundled pip to which we just updated is 7.0.3, which appears to bundle pkg_resources 15.0. [2]  So unless I've misunderstood, the hack will have to linger for a bit longer.

Here's a patch for when we get there.
