I had planned to do an article on the new packaging features, but the
discussion hasn't really come to any conclusions yet, and to be honest
I don't think that everything has settled enough yet (particularly on
binary installers)[1]. Maybe I could do a short post saying something
along the lines of "packaging is coming in 3.3, it's available now in
the form of distutils2, please try it out, work out what you like and
what you have problems with, and come and contribute on


[1] Also real life has left me with little or no spare time once more :-)
