That said, I'm not sure it was the best moment to backport, since test_packaging currently fails under Windows (I think Éric is supposed to look at it).
I will; any help is welcome, especially if you have a machine with the same Windows version (see #12678). I caught Georg’s message on python-committers but could not do anything in time; I only have Internet access at a public library so I can’t be as responsive as I would.
Plus, there are at least half a dozen issues which would need to be addressed in packaging before final release, but they are not complete show-stoppers and won't preclude 2.x users giving useful feedback.
Yes, there are a few dozen bugs that need addressing before 1.0 (i.e. Python 3.3), but there’s time. Alpha and beta releases of distutils2 would be useful.
