      Description

      The pip package provider cannot manage the installation of setuptools, distribute, or wheel as they are excluded from the output of "pip freeze". What happens is that puppet tries to install them on every run because it does not know they are installed. In versions of pip newer than 8.0.3 there is an "--all" flag that can be passed to pip to list them. PR is incoming to fix this, just wanted to have a jira ticket to reference .
