I am running a Fabric script that sets up a virtualenv on a remote server (running Ubuntu 12.04) and installs various packages into it. The script uses the
-E option for pip to install the packages into the virtualenv:
pip install -E . -r [path to requirements]
This used to work alright, but it appears the -E option has been removed from pip now (from the pip changelog).
Can anyone please suggest a workaround for this? Thanks.
