Hey all,

Sorry for this long silence; I'm now back on track.

+1 on that. We need to have inputs on that: that's good to have fields,
but it's more important to know how they are supposed to be considered.

Any news about that ? Do someone have email adresses of Matthias Klose
and Toshio Kuratomi ?

Also, it's important to notice there is a difference between the new
field (release-conflict IIRC), and I assume it's important to have a
discussion about it know, and the others fields that are just being
renamed. (*-release fields). Maybe could we update the PEP a first time
about the renaming changes, in order to use them in the first version of
Distutils2, and them continue the discussion about the conflict field.
