Now in the process of egg-ifying the current distutils based set-up. This provides the ability to automatically grab and build the required security dependencies and split the installation into server side and client side flavours. The client side egg may be deployed for example by application developers requiring to NDG secure resources. The server egg would be installed by data / identity providers.

MyProxy? and OpenSSL installations are best kept separate to the above.

Phil, will you document the eggification process you're going through on the wiki somewhere? At least on a very basic level?

All of us (with code) are going the have to understand how to do this so a real case study would be a useful reference.

  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Created script wrapper to easy_install:


This is necessary to enable passing of custom build settings for M2Crypto with OpenSSL and installation of Twisted. The latter has to be separate because it won't install as an egg.

The installation has been tested for the DEWS project for the MetOffice and LostWax deployments.
