 contains paths to the directories where the extra packages are
 installed.
 
-.. note:: For details on the ``.pth`` file, please refer to `modifying Python's search path <http://docs.python.org/install/index.html#inst-search-path>`_. In short, when a new package is installed using :mod:`distutils` or `one of its extenders <installation>`_, the contents of the package are dropped into the ``site-packages`` directory and then the name of the new package directory is added to a ``.pth`` file. This allows Python upon the next startup to see the new package.

 Benefits of packaging
 =====================
 
 The :mod:`distutils` modules is part of the :term:`standard library` and will be until Python 3.3. The :mod:`distutils` module will be discontinued in Python 3.3.  The :mod:`distutils2` (note the number two) will be backwards compatible for Python 2.4 onward; and will be part of the :term:`standard library` in Python 3.3.
 
-The :mod:`distutils` module is provides the basics for packaging Python. Unfortunately, the :mod:`distutils` module is riddled with a few problems, which is why a small group of python developers is working on :mod:`distutils2`. However, until :mod:`distutils2` is complete, it is recommended that the :term:`Developer` either use pure :mod:`distutils` or the `Distribute package <distribute_info_>`_ for packaging Python software.
