(from discussion at the 2015 Python Language Summit)

Current versions of Python make it relatively easy to install third-party packages such as requests.  New users may not realize this, though, and continue using libraries such as urllib/urllib2 because they're in the stdlib.

The Python tutorial doesn't seem to mention either virtualenv or pip. It should, describing how to create a virtualenv, install packages, and manage them in basic ways (removing, 'pip freeze', requirements.txt.)

One unrelated improvement: describe some of the recently-added modules, and mention the json module.

Rewrite discussion of python-list a bit, and add to the list of links.

Finally, the major stuff: add a section on pyvenv and pip to the tutorial.

modules.patch and tutorial.patch LGTM.

venv.patch is looking good; I posted two relatively minor comments on Rietveld.

There is a dangling "If you" at the end of the 3rd paragraph under "Creating Virtual Environments".

Small nit... The venv.patch file refers to "Python Packaging Index." It's the "Python Package Index."
