  Description     : the new version the the Python Distribute utilities

The Python Distribution utilities make Python modules and extensions easily
available to a wider audience with a very little overhead to build, install
and release mechanics.

This version is not backward compatible with Distutils but provides more
features and implements most new packaging standards.

Given, that this is just a new version of existing software, I would like to at 
least co-maintain that. It will be included in python3.3 anyway.

I'd like to keep the changes in current distutils and distribute, and distutils2 
in sync.

Are there currently any packages which use distutils2?

+1 for co-maintenance :)

Not yet, I think we should target alpha3 that will contain important
features that'll make it a viable alternative
Should be out in a week or so. We will have ppbly a few more alpha
then 2 or 3 betas.

the final should be out at the end of the year I hope

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of python-distutils2 back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting python-distutils2, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 597395 ITP: python-distutils2 -- the new version the the Python Distribute utilities
 owner 597395 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <597395@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

retitle 597395 RFP: python-distutils2 -- the replacement of distutils
thanks

Hi all,

I took over the day-to-day upstream maintenance of distutils2, with
Tarek still being the lead and decision-maker of the project.  I’m
interested in becoming officially involved in Debian and have started
learning Debian policies and tools, so I will probably make an ITP for
this when I release distutils2 1.0a4 later this month.

What would “at most” be?  Being sole maintainer?

> I'd like to keep the changes in current distutils and distribute, and
> distutils2 in sync.
I don’t really understand why distutils in Debian has a non-standard
--install-layout option.  Can’t it be achieved with regular
--root/--prefix/--install-* options?

Also, with packaging in Python 3.3 or distutils2, the configuration for
installation schemes move from Python code in the install command to a
sysconfig.cfg file, which is precisely intended for OS packagers to
customize.  Won’t that remove the need for --install-layout?

> Are there currently any packages which use distutils2?
There are some projects on PyPI that depend on d2 for their packaging,
in replacement or in addition to distutils or setuptools-based setup.py.
 I don’t know if there are projects which use d2 at runtime (i.e.
packaging tools using public building blocks we provide).  HTH

Best regards
