I've recently released version 0.2.8 of distlib on PyPI [1]. For newcomers,distlib is a library of packaging functionality which is intended to beusable as the basis for third-party packaging tools.
The main changes in this release are as follows:
* Fixed #107: Updated documentation on testing to include information on  setting PYTHONHASHSEED.
* Fixed #108: Updated metadata scan to look for the METADATA file as well as the  JSON formats.
* Fixed #109: Removed existing files (which might have been symlinks) before  overwriting.
* Fixed #111: Avoided unnecessary newlines in script preambles, which caused  problems with detecting encoding declarations. Thanks to Wim Glenn for the  report and patch.
* Fixed #112: Handled wheel tags and platform-dependent downloads correctly in  SimpleScrapingLocator.
A more detailed change log is available at [2].
Please try it out, and if you find any problems or have any suggestions for improvements,please give some feedback using the issue tracker! [3]
