I completely agree with your expectation, regarding *3rd party* python packages. We shouldn't expect developers to install packages from repositories that fall outside of their normal distro repos. However, my understanding was that python3-distutils should be available as a normal (not 3rd party) component on Ubuntu 18. I think we can expect developers to install additional packages if those packages are readily available in their normal (distro-provided) repos. > So, I suggest to check whether python3-distutils is the native python > library. If it is native python library, why Ubuntu18 doesn't include it. I > will work with Dandan to collect more information. Right, that's exactly what I'm asking for. Thank you very much!
