I don't want to get into a fight (but I am getting used at receiving
personal attacks and try not flame things) ,
but these notifications, among other things, makes it unclear that the
Setuptools project is a distinct project from Distutils.
For example, I am sometimes receiving mails from people complaining
that easy_install doesn't work right
and that Distutils should be fixed.
It's great that Distutils-SIG host several projects, especially since
many people want to have a unified
project for the packaging topic.
But these notifications have to be straightened up, and I don't see
any rationale yet why they should stay in this list.
