The packaging tutorial currently talks about "pysetup run install_dist" and "pysetup install" which aren't doing the same thing: one fetches the dependencies while the other doesn't.

This should be stated clearly.

That’s the difference between actions and commands, which people always understand very well when I explain it.  I don’t remember if I already have written something in my big doc patch (#12779); if you want I can check tonight and tell you if I did it or if you can do it.

See also #13160.

That would be helpful yep. I can add this in the docs if you've not done it already.

This is now obsolete.  The new packaging guide will hopefully make a clear distinction between “ install” and “pip install”, and future developments may altogether remove “ install”.
