Fwd: Status updated to Closed for Issue: distutils "install" command will not install a simple module. [IronPython: 28530]

Jeff:
  You are right to close this bug -- I made a bad report based on an incorrect assumption. But I would not have been led astray if the error message had not been so obscure.  It should SAY just exactly what you said: "elevation is required."  IMHO the distutils error reporting should be improved.
 My question for you: Is IronPython distutils a special version (and we can fix it here) or straight from the Python Standard Library (and it must be fixed there)?
  Perhaps I can supply a patch, but I need to know where to send it.

Hi Vernon,
A little of both, actually - we have a copy of the Python stdlib, and
there are some modifications to it, but the goal is to stay as close
as possible to the CPython stdlib.

If you supply a patch upstream, I'll apply it to our copy because it
affects us more than CPython, and it likely won't make production
until 3.3.

I wouldn't worry about trying to determine if elevation is required -
just 'write access denied' should be enough.

- Jeff
