 Could you remind me which package (or svn revision) you are refering

*r72589, **r72588 and few others.*

 I'll turn that around. What are they needed for? You should only
 need a setup.py and, if buildout is used, a buildout.cfg.

 The examples alex showed me seemed out of date with the current way
 of doing things.

 I particularly don't want setup.cfg.in, and MANIFEST.in as these
 aren't really necessary and tend to cause problems.

Agreed. Anyway, atleast we will be required a README.txt and CHANGES.txt

OK, in principal I agree. The trouble is that a lot of these were just place holders. For example, in r72589 just deleted a one-line README.txt. r72588 deleted a README.txt that really only had one useful line of data and a lot of data that would have needed to be deleted. In retrospect, I guess we should have cut this to one line. The CHANGES.txt file was effectively empty. I looked at some other examples that were even worse.

I'll ask Alex to look at the README.txt files and CHANGES.txt files that were deleted to see if there are any that should be brought back.

In r72507 a setup.py is added to Zope3/trunk/src/zope/annotation/ setup.py
This should be in zope.annotation/trunk/setup.py
(It's already there, also alex later modified it)

Ah, OK. I should have seen that,
