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.
