He then mentioned it in his 2.5 slideshow at PyCon. This is the first anyone's objected to it, however, at least that I'm aware of.
Until the past week, I wasn't aware it was being considered. But then, I've not been paying a lot of attention lately, so I suspect that's my fault.
The setuptools manual is currently at:
pending conversion to the standard Pythondoc format. I posted earlier today asking about how it, and the other related manuals should be included in the overall Python documentation structure:
Saw that; hopefully I'll have a chance to look at it soon. I wonder, generally, if it should be merged into the distutils documentation. Those documents happen to be distutils-centric now, because that's what's been provided. Their titles should be the guide to their content, however.
So, I'm not too pleased by insinuations that setuptools is anything other than a Python community project.
I've no doubt about that at all, FWIW. I think you've put a lot of effort into discussing it with the community, and applaud you for that as well as your implementation efforts.
