Ok, I will try installing it tonight from tarek's, and will let you know. Also some time ago, I was trying to package it for Fedora 16 and I faced similar problem with that, pysetup not getting installed.
Also @tarek, if possible Please update python-side for the package
And why do I need latest cython for distutils? I would be using 2.X and not 3.X
Distutils2 is included in Python 3 under the name 'packaging' which is where, I believe, most of its development is focused. The "distutils2" name is used for the backport of packaging to Python 2.x as well as Python 3.x prior to the availability of packaging in the standard library.
Confused yet? There are some historical reasons for all that, but the main point is that if you're interested in working on distutils2, you really want to up and running on the main Python development branch and work on *packaging*. I think that most of the work is being done there, and then backported to distutils2. This post Tarek made a while back should help you get up and running: http://tarekziade.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/help-us-ironing-packaging/
Also, I had previously come in contact with merwok and I would be applying in GSoC this year under PSF for distutils2 project (as I believe PSF will be under GSoC and distutils will surely be accepted), so I am writing to seek help on what all things should be my target, and how do I move ahead. Currently, I am trying to work on the ]issue 12944 but due to certain constraints things are not geared up, though I hope they would soon be :) Please guide me and drop-in all your suggestions
Waiting for guidance
