Dear Eric:

Is Distutils2 kind of your baby?  Simply, you are the only one working
on it!  I am curious as to what you mean by this statement, when I get
some spare round tuits?

>From the bug tracker page, this has been around for over a year!  I
applied the diff file that was attached to the page to the current
Python-3.3.0a2, and it doesn't make a bit of difference on the

I also added the path to sys.path, like this:
sys.path.append(os.getcwd()) and it doesn't make a difference!

After the upcoming Distutils2 sprint, when will the work be patched
into Distutils2?  When will we see the benefit of all the work that
will be done???

1) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47247655/create_setup_cfg.py
2) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47247655/setup_custom.py
3) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47247655/setup.cfg

1) Will create the setup.cfg file if one is not there...?

The rest, you know about already...  I have updated 2 and 3 and
uploaded the new ones...

Sincerely yours,
Rob G. Healey
