Inclusion of the python lxml library

Reported by: mostlyatnight Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: minor Component: Installer
Version: Keywords: installer xml lxml python lib library
Cc: tomkralidis, neumann


I'm developing a QGIS python plugin which uses the lxml library.

I notice that lxml is not currently included in the installer and wondered if anyone else was thinking about including this package.

Am currently reading through the docs of how to achieve this myself but would be interested to know if anyone one else was up for volunteering before myself.

just a quick note to whoever takes this one: a light read of indicates possible problems if a binary libxml2 is installed in addition to binary lxml. We do have a libxml2 package, required for Mapnik, Mapserver, and Tinyows. So please test accordingly.

In case someone runs into the same problem, I have setup lxml with the pypi distribute-0.6.49 python setup file and it works without bugs for me for a few months now.
