We've juste released Distribute 0.6.4.
This version is now fully compatible with zc.buildout, meaning that you can use Distribute in your buildout transparently as long as you use our special zc.buildout bootstrap file located here : http://nightly.ziade.org/bootstrap.py.
We've also added in [Jannis' upload_docs command], that allows a project to upload its Sphinx based documentation to PyPI.
As a matter of fact, Distribute is using it now and you can reach its documentation at : http://packages.python.org/distribute.
If you have any feedback, or want to help around, drop us a mail at distutils-sig or come in our IRC channel in #distutils (freenode)
