New submission from Paul Ganssle <p.ganssle at gmail.com>:

I've been asked to post this by @brainwave (who is having some trouble getting an account on bpo due to technical difficulties).

Per twine's github issue 311 ( https://github.com/pypa/twine/issues/311 ), it seems that distutil's docs Update setuptools and distutils docs, e.g., https://docs.python.org/3.6/distutils/packageindex.html#the-upload-command should be clarified to indicate that PyPI does not require register anymore, although other package indexes might.
