Let's try this again. If distutils2/packaging is meant to actually be part of Python 3.3, I think it needs some documentation and implementation loving. Is there a list of outstanding issues that need resolution? I'm willing to row on them, but I need some direction.
For the doc I’ve been working on a big patch to cover the change from setup.py to setup.cfg and pysetup. Otherwise there are many things that could be improved, like the tutorial or a cookbook, but patches for this can go after the beta or even final release. There is a list of issues on bugs.python.org (search for the distutils2 component), but I did not prioritize it.
I can't really see packaging being included in Python 3.3 without a good bit of work being put into it. Am I mistaken?
A good bit of work was put into it, not the least to convert it to Python 3 (and then back to Python 2), but not all is done. In the worst case packaging 1.0 in Python 3.3 will work for simple cases and people will be able to use it to install a newer version of distutils2. I still think it’s possible to do better than this worst case.
Going to reply to your other message now.
