Thanks dieter I understand that is the case if I have one project and have tried it and that works fine.
My situation is similar to the following....
Assume the following two privately developed projects that I have written, each with their own setup.py:
1. parent exists in folder $HOME/project/
2. child exists in folder $HOME/a_different_project/
*child could be also be used by other projects in the future....
parent has a dependency requirement on child and so child is listed as an install dependency in parent setup.py
if I try python setup.py develop from parent project it fails to find child dependency on build.
I have created a github project to illustrate the scenario @
