I want to suggest two changes to the standard release process:
1. use "sdist --formats=zip". This works around a nasty bug in the
python 2.4 tarfile module which makes it skip files with a
path of a specific length. This can make a release impossible to use.
2. forbid the use of __file__ in setup.py. This breaks on systems
which do not have setuptools installed globally but rely on a
(zc.buildout-created) wrapper script. __file__ will point
to the wrapper script in those instances, which breaks setup.py.
