[New-bugs-announce] [issue17281] Broken links at pypi

New submission from Kevin Lyda:

The pypi entry for distutils2 has a comical set of broken links (docs and contributing): https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Distutils2

The following two paragraphs have broken links. Adding a link checker to your browser isn't the worst idea.

The Distutils2 codebase is a fork of Distutils. It is not backward compatible with Distutils and does not depend on it. It provides more features and implements new packaging standards. In Python 3.3, Distutils2 is included in the standard library under the module name "packaging". Documentation is provided at http://docs.python.org/dev/packaging 404 --for ease of maintenance, it is not duplicated in this repository. You can use the Packaging documentation to use Distutils2; only the package name is different (packaging vs. distutils2), all modules, classes and functions have the same name.

If you want to contribute, please have a look at DEVNOTES.txt or http://wiki.python.org/Distutils2/Contributing 404 .
