I’m trying to deploy my first blueprint, and running into an issue that I’m not understanding. I’ve got a Django project, and from what I can understand, one of my dependencies has a dependency and for some reason that sub-dependency’s setup.py isn’t working. But I can’t figure out what’s going wrong, or whether there is anything I can do about this. The package all works fine when I’m running it on my local development environment.
Here are the details from my build log:

Extraction took 2s. ==> Using Python version: 3.10.4 ==> Running build command './build.sh'...

From what I understand, it sounds like Render is somehow unhappy with the “persisting-theory” package. But I don’t know what I can do about it…
