I've just read Guido's description on new features in Python1.6, including his description of distutils
I'm a bit confused by the description of distutils, since it describes software that I haven't seen yet, even though I've been using 'distutils'.
Don't feel bad, Joe, you weren't the only one who fell for it.
Just to clarify: there is only one Distutils, the most recent code (as I write this) is what's included in Python 1.6 alpha 1, the description at www.python.org/sigs/distutils-sig remains valid, and the Distutils that will be included in Python 1.6 final will not be substantially different from what you've all been playing with.
