Requires-Dist: zope.interface (3.1.0) ==> only 3.1.0
For completeness, isn't this really "any versino which starts with 3.1.0, not including post- or pre- releases"? That particular pacakge doesn't use more than a third version component, but there are packages in the wild which use four.
Requires-Python: 2.6.2 ==> only Python 2.6.2
Here, the issue is only theoretical: Python dosn't issue "fourth dot" releases.
Both points are right. I'll remove from the PEP the range operator and provide a definition for 2.5 vs 2.5.x vs 2.5.0, as well as all these examples, corrected.
