[Python-Dev] PEP 514 and pywin32

So today I tried to install pywin32 on my new Python 3.6.0 and got the 
following error:

Cannot install
Python version 3.6-32 required, which was not found in the registry.

Seems like pywin32, although built for 3.6, doesn't understand or 
conform to the PEP 514? So the installer doesn't work? I suspect maybe 
the code would still work, if it would install. I also noted that pip 
cannot find a compatible pywin32, and PyPI only reports compatibility 
through Python 3.3.

1. Where should this be reported? SourceForge?
2. Anyone know a workaround?
