Thanks for answering my questions, all.

> > Let's say pulp_file is being tested. Is both it and pulpcore installed
from source? Or is pulpcore installed from egg/wheel?
> Yes, we’re testing against source which also allows us to test against
different PRs. Often, a pulpcore change will require a pulp_file change or
vice versa and we just added some functionality recently that actually lets
us test against PRs too.[1] pulp-smash is also running against source or
PRs. IMO, testing against source lets us move faster than testing against
releases. Maybe we can look at switching though once things have stabilized
after the MVP.

This seems fine in most cases. But when verifying whether a plugin can be
made into a wheel, this seems like a bad strategy. A brand new wheel should
work well when installed alongside other wheels from PyPI, and testing
against from-source installations gives no assurance that this is so.
