- make sure the new standard (which is compatible with all tools out there in its current state - see PEP 376) contains everything we need.
- work on the uninstall story, by looking at PEP 262 and seeing how the RECORD file need to be
- make sure the APIs proposed are complete
- think hard to see if we want a reference install/uninstall script in distutils (I am +1 personnaly)
