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:

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


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
