I'm the maintainer of pyfa , a tool for EVE Online players. I was
wondering if I could get some advice on how to include an arbitrary
version of a Python library into the package?
The problem is that the current version of python-wxpython in community
has a bug that causes the latest version of pyfa to crash, and the pyfa
developers have set a hard requirement of wxPython == 4.0.0b2  (the
issue will apparently by fixed in 4.0.2).
What's the best or most elegant way to handle this?
The only thing I can think of is using pip to install this version into
my $pkgdir and setting PYTHONPATH in the startup shell script to force
pyfa to use the bundled version. However, I'm not sure of this and would
like any pointers or better a better way to handle it.
