Some quick notes:
- the wininst version (Distutils-1.0.2.win32.exe) crashed with a general
protection fault, if I build it myself it seems to work.
- The archive-util bug reported by Pete Shinners seems still to be
> in the file "lib/distutils/archive-util.py" line 103, it creates
> a ZIP archive with the following command...
> ZipFile(zip_filename, "wb", compression=zipfile.ZIP_DEFLATED)
I can take a deeper look later, in the meantime it seems it should
not yet be released.
BTW: There is a bug in the Python 2.1 release version of Distutils:
'1.0.2pre' isn't a valid version number by distutils' own standards.
This was of course _my_ fault.
