http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip/0.6 (‘pip is a replacement for easy_install. It uses mostly the same techniques for finding packages, so packages that were made easy_installable should be pip-installable as well…The main website for pip is pip.openplans.org. You can also install the in-development version of pip with easy_install pip==dev. ‘)
source: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/distutils-sig/2009-November/014229.html On behalf of the Distribute team, I am pleased to announce the 0.6.7 release of Distribute. As usual, availabe at PyPI: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/distribute Most noticeable changes in 0.6.7 are: - now the develop command supports the --user option, so it can use the per-user site packages (PEP 370) - the generated scripts now wrap their call to the script entry point in the standard "if name == 'main'" - better errors handling in PackageIndex when files and pages are visited by easy_install - a virtualenv-compatible version, so the next virtualenv release will be able to provide a --distribute option. You can visit http://pypi.python.org/pypi/distribute#id2 for a full CHANGES list. We are now starting the 0.6.8 work in parallel of 0.7.x development, with more bugfixes coming up.
This is just a placeholder for bootstrap files for Distribute, and nightly builds for Distutils
