Overview

The "Python Packaging User Guide" aims to be the authoritative resource on how
to package and install distributions in Python.

The guide is part of a larger effort to improve all of the packaging and
installation docs, including pip, setuptools, virtualenv, and wheel. Ultimately,
users need more than a "guide" to feel confident about the current tools. They
need complete, accurate and inter-consistent documentation across all the
projects.

The guide is currently maintained by the "Python Packaging Authority" (PyPA).
It was forked from the “Hitchhikers Guide to Packaging” in March 2013, which was
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.
