Q: Could someone differentiate between the various package management systems in Python - distutils, distutils2,
setuptools/easy_install, distribute, pip?
While I don't have any difficulties installing Python packages,
I'm slightly lost on the details surrounding each of the listed
Python package management systems - distutils, distutils2,
setuptools/easy_install, distribute, and pip.
I was hoping someone could provide some background on each and
why I should choose one over another
