Per, distutils should by default produce gztar formats on all platforms.

This one would be worth a note in What's New as well - both in the "changed modules" section under distutils, and in the "Porting to Python 3.6" section

While it doesn't affect Python code per se, it may affect folks doing Windows-specific workflow automation, where they'll either need to configure the use of "zip" explicitly, or else adjust their other tools to handle .tar.gz inputs.
