I'm not sure what you mean. The basic algorihm is:

- MANIFEST is used to determine what is installed, or
- subversion workingcopy information is used to determine what is installed, or
- a default ruleset is used

This algorithm is used at the moment a 'binary installation' is made,
which is either when you build an egg using setup.py bdist_egg or when
you install an egg from source (ie from a sdist or an unpacked tree).
