I guess you mixed up eggs and packages here somehow.

Do you have an __init__.py in ``nva.sliteauth/``? Your output looks a
bit like it. This would make your nva.sliteauth directory become a
(toplevel) part of the ``training`` egg as well.

If `nva.sliteauth/` contains a different egg (with an own setup.py,
etc., but without an __init__.py), why do you put it into your
``training`` egg sources? I'd assume the usual way would be to put
``nva.sliteauth/`` in the project root (not: src/).

OTOH: if `nva.sliteauth` was meant to be another toplevel package of the
``training`` egg, why don't you simply remove ``nva.sliteauth`` so that
you get

   + training/
   + nva/
   |   |
   |   + sliteauth/

In this case you wouldn't have to fiddle with ``training``s setup.py.


But you certainly want to become ``nva.sliteauth`` a different egg,

Apparently the testrunner searches for a package ``nva`` in the
``nva.sliteauth`` package (not: egg). This makes me think there is
something wrong in the root dir of the ``nva.sliteauth`` egg.

Best regards,
