I am lacking of time right now to finish an important task before 3.2 final is out: we need to release "packaging" as a standalone release under Python 2.x and Python 3.1, to gather as much feedback as we can from more people.
Doing an automated conversion turned out to be a nightmare, and I was about to go ahead and maintain a fork of the packaging package, with the few modules that are needed (sysconfig, etc) within a standalone release.
I am looking for someone that has some free time and that is willing to lead this work.
3.2 can go out without this work of course, but it would be *much* better to have that feedback
If you are interested, please let me know.
