I am using Python 2.7, so how do I install pysetup. though when I install distutils1.0a3 I do see distutils module in my interactive session but I dont see any pysetup being installed
That "release" is pretty old, and I'm not sure it even includes the pysetup script. If you're going to be doing d2 development you're best off getting the latest source from hg: https://bitbucket.org/tarek/distutils2
You should also make sure to get the latest cpython repo from http://hg.python.org/cpython to work on packaging. Though I don't know exactly what the current policy is on merging from packaging to distutils2 or vice-versa, so I'm not the best person to comment on that.
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 [...]
Also, I had previously come in contact with merwok and I would be
in GSoC this year under PSF for distutils2 project (as I believe PSF
under GSoC and distutils will surely be accepted), so I am writing to
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
