Description-en_AU: alternative Python package installer - Python 3 
version of the package
 pip is a replacement for easy_install, and is intended to be an improved
 Python package installer.  It integrates with virtualenv, doesn't do
 partial installs, can save package state for replaying, can install from
 non-egg sources, and can install from version control repositories.
 .
 This is the Python 3 version of the package.
