Could you tell me more about this?  What were the "3 expected failures"?

It should not have been necessary for you to manually install  
twisted, zope.interface (much less the entire zope package which is  
much bigger than zope.interface), nor easy_install.

However, I recently heard from a Macintosh user that he also had to  
install Twisted manually in order to install Tahoe.  What's going on?

On the other hand, Danny O'Brien and David Evans were able to install  
the current Tahoe from source without manually installing  
dependencies, so the "No Manual Dependencies" process is working for  
some people.

This doesn't show conclusively that anything is broken, although it  
does raise some questions in my mind.  What is the result of "make  
test"?


Thanks!
