Sorry, I have to reject this again.

1) The distutils doc only gets bug fixes now.  It is more useful to spend time on distutils2.

2) requires is unusable and unused, because it contains module names, not PyPI project names. Documenting it would cause more harm than good.  Right now people use setuptools’ install_requires, which were the inspiration for the PEP 345 fields, which is implemented in distutils2.
