Distribution formats

Source distribution format

The accepted style of source distribution format based on pyproject.toml, defined in PEP 518 and adopted by PEP 517 has not been implemented yet.

There is also the legacy source distribution format, implicitly defined by the behaviour of distutils module in the standard library, when executing setup.py sdist.

Binary distribution format

The binary distribution format (wheel) is defined in PEP 427.
