Pip is a popular installer and uninstaller of Python packages. Currently, pip depends on the third-party packaging extensions in setuptools, or the distribute fork. The future of Python packaging is distutils2 ("packaging" in the Python 3.3+ standard library), and pip should gain support for using distutils2/packaging as an alternative to setuptools/distribute (though setuptools/distribute support needs to be maintained as well for some time to come).

Possible areas of work for a proposal here:

Work has been started under the pip2 name.
