Quite a state of flux in these parts it looks?

I see in "Fate of Distutils"

If you have followed what is going on with packaging since last year,
you might think: “distutils, setuptools, distribute and now distutils2
?, oh no!!!”

I was quite despaired right after the summit. All the work we did
during in the past year would not land into the standard library for
2.7, and all the pre- refactoring work I did, like making the test
coverage decent, was going to be useless for the stdlib.

I am supposed to teach this in a couple of weeks :-) and I am running
faster and faster (in circles)
