The demo directories added about .6MB to the size of the PyOpenGL .egg.
The Demos, while very useful, are not really necessary for packages that
depend on PyOpenGL. They are also the reason that we can't mark
PyOpenGL "zip-safe" (since the demos are not written to use
pkg_resources for their images and the like).
I'm planning on splitting them into a separate distribution (.egg) that
will depend upon the PyOpenGL distribution. This will mean that if you
want the demos you would do:
and it would pull in the PyOpenGL .egg along the way. Or if you just
want the PyOpenGL core, you'd just do the regular:
I'm planning to do this for the 3.0.0a6 release (hopefully packaged up
in the next couple of hours).
Just a heads-up,
