Here's the lists of tasks we are going to work on. They are simple.

- PyPI : write a patch to enforce (or display a warning) the source
distribution to be uploaded. so if a binary distribution or a zipped
egg is uploaded
  we are sure we provide the source as well.

- Documentation: write a glossary for the distutils/setuptools/Pypi
terminology on python.org wiki

- PyPI mirroring: write a PEP to implement a mirroring protocol, where
mirrors can register at PyPI. Then when a package is uploaded, mirrors
will be ping through RPC
  so they know they can eventually get synced.

- setuptools: finish the patch for the multiple index support,  with a
CPAN-like mechanism on the client side,  with a socket timeout
managment -

- distutils: code cleaning: better test coverage, remove logging, etc.
