Heat checks version each time setup.py is executed

Why does Heat need to check its version (via .git files or pkg-info) every time setup.py is executed? I cant push heat submodule into my repository, also Pkg-info file is not provided in source files. I also don't want to install heat upstream every time. Is there good way to avoid that?

Heat uses oslo setup to check the current version, in a similar way to other openstack projects:


This version info is used to create the python egg directory name - hence we need either a tag name or a git unique SHA version (for development versions) to create an appropriately named egg to install.

Please drop in to #heat on Freenode if you need further information, as I'm not sure I understand your use-case based on the "I cant push heat submodule into my repository" comment, thanks!
