New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

Currently, the documentation makes no mention of the PKG-INFO file.

It would be useful if the documentation mentioned what this file is and how it is created (e.g. via the sdist command), and also linked to PEP 314.  This can be covered somewhere in the distutils documentation:


Index entries should also be created as appropriate.
