bug#14639: package-initialize not run


From: Juanma Barranquero
Subject: bug#14639: package-initialize not run
Date: Mon, 17 Jun 2013 04:34:16 +0200

Package: emacs
Version: 24.3.50
X-Debbugs-CC: address@hidden


package-initialize is not being run because the code to detect
description files does

  (when (let ((subdir (expand-file-name subdir dir)))
          (and (file-directory-p subdir)
               (file-exists-p
                (package--description-file subdir))))
    (throw 'package-dir-found t)))))))

but package--description-file does not return an absolute filename, so
file-exists-p fails.

Either this patch is needed,

or modifying package--description-file to return an absolute path.
