Welcome to Distribute's documentation!
======================================

`Distribute` is a fork of the `Setuptools` project.

Distribute is intended to replace Setuptools as the standard method for
working with Python module distributions.

For those who may wonder why they should switch to Distribute over Setuptools, it’s quite simple:

- Distribute is a drop-in replacement for Setuptools
- The code is actively maintained, and has over 10 commiters
- Distribute offers Python 3 support !
