I'll commit something simple to deal with this, since the fancier
plans were apparently too much.

So now on the 1.0 maintenance branch (coming soon to trunk, once I'm
done wrangling with svnmerge) you can set new rc parameters
examples.download to False and examples.directory to the directory where
you have a checkout of the sample data�. Then get_sample_data will only
look in this directory and not download anything.

Does this help with the Debian and Ubuntu builds?

I believe that should help. Hopefully someone on the bug with more
knowledge of the policy will comment to confirm.

How would one set these during the build process? Is there a way to pass
in rc parameters via environment variable? Perhaps we should just patch
matplotlibrc.template in the tree? Any ideas would be appreciated,

I can't check right now how the doc build works, but I think you could either patch the build script to set the parameters programmatically or drop a matplotlibrc file in the relevant directory.

Yes, indeed, thanks! I was in fact just working on preparing a patch
again "vanilla" 1.0.0 to be included in Debian package, but then I
realized that I have to provide those sample data, downloading them
from the internet before the build and ship them in the debian
customization of the released tarball... then I stop.

What's the plan about 1.0.1? is it going to be release soon? will it
include the sample_data dir in the released tarball, so that we can
set examples.download = False, and examples.directory =
"..../sample_data" inside the tarball? that would really help getting
mpl 1.0.* into Debian.

Regards,

I will try and get to the release ASAP and set the sample_data up this way...

Any news on this? A release would be very nice. I did the bulk of the
work[1] to get the debian packaging working with the 1.0 series but I
can't really do much else until there is an actual release to work
against.

    Although this isn't quite working yet. More about this in another
    thread.
