shell> python setup.py --with-protobuf-include-dir=<protobuf-include-dir> --with-protobuf-lib-dir=<protobuf-lib-dir> --with-protoc=<protoc-binary> --with-mysql-capi=<mysql-capi>

But it should be at least:

python setup.py --install --with-protobuf-include-dir=<protobuf-include-dir> ...

How to repeat:

Thank you for the bug report, this is fixed as of MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.12. That release will also regenerate the API documentation that contains this bug.
