I was trying to install the python bindings for VLC, but it failed with a

  NameError: name 'sys_platform' is not defined

This was distribute_setup.py that was out of date, patch 1.

Secondly, when you install a python package in one very much used way
(referencing the package in your requirements.txt file for pip), you don't
access to the include/ files.  Since there's always a usable pre-generated
vlc.py file included.  That is patch 2.

Sorry for sending to potentially the wrong list, but I didn't find a
list for the python bindings here:


I was also unable to use git-send-email, it kept coming up with new,
wonderful error messages.  Hopefully gmail won't break it too bad.
