Description

A user in IRC reported that trying to build against latest git master results in:

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'mediagoblin/_version.py' when making ./bin/python setup.py develop

_version.py was removed in https://gitorious.org/mediagoblin/mediagoblin/commit/e6121708e5d1297f92fcecfa4025b222e805c743 to be generated via configure.ac, but this appears to break setup.py (unless someone runs make first?).

Yes, you should run ./configure && make first.

I'm not 100% sure we need to do the mediagoblin/_version.py via the config system, though I guess it does "enforce" that people run configure first.

I'm marking this as "invalid", but I'm not convinced the concern is... but the need to ./configure && make first is correct ;)
