On the documentation page:, one can read :

# requires-python: Specifies the Python version the distribution requires. The value is a version number, as described in PEP 345. *optional *multi *environ

This is not consistant with the PEP 345 (, which doesn't specify that this field is of multiple use.

Distutils's behaviour on this matter is consistent with the PEP thought, so there's only need to remove the "*multi" in the documentation.

Thanks for spotting this.  I agree with your analysis, but not with your patch :)  The value is a comma-separated list of version predicates, not a version number.

A note about the bug tracker fields: Setting the component to Distutils will automatically get Tarek and me nosy, setting it to Distutils2 will add Alexis as well.  Also please set 3rd party for version.  Thanks for your contribution!
