Hello, have you just seen distribute guide - which is just an update fork of the original setuptools distribution - or did you check out this as well?:
Surely the setuptools/distribute fork has been painful so far, but it's done. You could check out distutils2 as well
Um... neither, I don't think.
I was commenting on this one: http://packages.python.org/distribute
The only "doc" I've seen for setuptools was pretty bad. I don't find a copy of it now, though.
And I haven't yet seen a piece of overall documentation. With at least three major efforts being involved, there really needs to be an overview, perhaps a HOWTO on python packaging. Yes, I understand that it's politically charged, but right now it's pretty daunting.
