Re: Invalid Version Number (Distutils from Cygwin)

I'm attempting to build a project (FANN libraries) using cygwin (to
avoid installing MSVC 2003) and am receiving this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
[snip]
ValueError: invalid version number '2.18.50.20080523'
The above is a known issue:

http://bugs.python.org/issue2234

Unfortunately, resolution of this issue has stalled.

Additionally, someone posted a different regular expression to the
Cygwin list that is suppose to handle more cases of ld version strings:

http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2008-05/msg00622.html

Can we reach consensus on what is the best ld version string regular
expression to use? If so, then I will work to get this change committed
to the Python code base and release a patched Cygwin Python 2.5.2 with
this fix included.

Thanks,
Jason
