The "Python Packaging User Guide" is a guide focusing on current best-practices for working with Python distributions (third-party software distributions of Python packages and modules). It covers finding, installing, creating, and distributing packages, as well as other aspects of the Python module packaging ecosystem. The guide will also maintain information on the latest development efforts to improve Python packaging and installation. This guide is a fork from the original "Hitchhiker's Guide to Packaging", which was previously maintained by Tarek Ziadé. Thankyou Tarek for all your efforts in python packaging. The html version of the Guide is currently available at https://python-packaging-user-guide.readthedocs.org. Please see the `source/license.txt` file for license information.
