I have had some people who do argue that sdist is an installation format, not a source format - if you want the source use github. I think most of them eventually do change, however it makes me a bit uneasy that maybe they might be right. As a result, some of my recent packages I have used github, rather then try to "fix" things on PyPI. That way I can be sure that the build will always be consistant, and not suddenly and unexpectedly drop files. -- Brian May <b...@debian.org>
