Having problems with installation does not mean there is a bug with

Being implemented in C++, and depending on other C/C++ libraries,
graph-tool requires a basic understanding and familiarity with compiling
and installing C++ libraries, sorting out dependencies, etc. For those
that do not have this familiarity, there are packages available for some
operating systems (Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Gentoo and MacOS), that make
this task easier.

I use it extensively in my research, and I know that others do too.
