Yeah, that history still shows.  The first section called "Install the
Tools" is only about installing the tools needed for installation.
Later sections have you installing other "tools" like wheel and twine
when you get to the parts about packaging.  There is also no clear
separation between when the page switches from the installation parts
to the packaging parts (e.g. so users interested only in installing
can see more immediately what they need to be reading).
