Hi everybody,

http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py points to 0.6.15

DEFAULT_VERSION should be "0.6.16" (the latest release on PyPI) instead, correct?

Furthermore, when bootstrapping with zc.buildout and distribute 0.6.16 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (system Python 2.5), I get a Permission denied error, because distribute wants to be installed in the system Python's site-packages directory which didn't happen with 0.6.15. This is very likely caused by the incorrect DEFAULT_VERSION.

Many thanks in advance and best regards,
