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.
No doubt that's the proper thing to do in the long term, when/if setuptools is the official One Obvious Way To Do It. I was wondering, however, if perhaps Python 2.5 should include them as "Building and Distributing Python Eggs" (for what's now setuptools.txt) and "Installing Python Eggs" (for what's now EasyInstall.txt).
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.
