There are several different ways to install Python packages, and Pulp Smash supports some of the most common methods. For example, a developer might want to install Pulp Smash in editable mode into a virtualenv:

python3 -m venv ~/.venvs/pulp-smash
source env/bin/activate  # run `deactivate` to exit environment
pip install --upgrade pip
git clone
cd pulp-smash
pip install --editable .[dev]
make all  # verify sanity

In addition to the dependencies listed in, install OpenSSH if testing is to be performed against a remote host. [1]

[1]This hard dependency is a bug. It would be better to require _an_ SSH implementation, whether provided by OpenSSH, Paramiko, Dropbear, or something else.
