[New-bugs-announce] [issue14011] packaging should use shutil archiving functions transparently
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:
The packaging commands sdist and bdist can create various kinds of archives. The function used to create them is thankfully just a thin wrapper around shutil.make_archive (extracted from distutils), and sdist also uses shutil.get_archive_formats to validate its --formats option. bdist however maintains its own registry.
The docstrings, help texts and reST documentation also contain out-of-sync duplicate lists of allowed formats.
I’m working on a patch to fix this duplication.
