[PyQt] pkg_resources error....

Indeed it is a missing optional method. Normally it should not lead to errors, but in reality since built in modules provide it, developers just relay on its presence. I'd try to update both pkg_resources and pytz first. If it won't help, it'd worth to study sources of pytz and, if the error is there, report to its developers.

Meanwhile, it should be possible to implement them for pyqtdeploy. I already implemented some of them in my fork. I believe I sent a patch, but if not, it should be easy to extract it from there.

Basically it says that method is optional, and from what Ilya said, pyqtdeploy’s implementation of the loader API did not implement that optional method.  You could look for that method definition in the source for pyqtdeploy’s implementation, since it is all open source.
