Correct if I'm wrong but distlib isn't targeting resources managent? 
distutils is targeted to distribute python modules/packages instead; 
small differences but on the field they really mean different things.

distlib is under http://hg.python.org/distlib too :O
..my first guess would be that's the released "branch".

I was following that work for a while, but have lost track of its current state. Can someone point me to the right mailing list, and maybe a status page or something so I can start figuring out where we might be able to help?
