Agreed. Note that non-trivial commits to a release branch, like
master, should be
via pull request.

I'm going to dig into this.  I'm baffled by the assertion that this has
anything to do with readCurrent.

Regardless of whether it should have been made to the 3.10 branch,
I'm going to use Godefroid's test case to dig further.

I couldn't agree more. One of the advantages of moving to
git was circumventing setuptool's misguided magic.

I've no idea what Tres was referring to wrt
"instsall-from-a-github-generated-tarball", but I use Manifest.in
files in all my modern projects.
