Distribute was a fork of the Setuptools project. It is no longer maintained and has been merged back into Setuptools. Distutils is the standard packaging tool for Python. It is included in the standard library. Setuptools is a collection of enhancements to Distutils. It includes support for building and installing eggs. Distutils2 is a proposed successor to Distutils. It is not yet included in the standard library.
