What does one need to tell setup.py to make sure CHANGES.txt is

didn't do anything special.

Do you mean available in the unpacked sdist, or as part of the
installation?  I don't think any of README, README.txt, CHANGES,
CHANGES.txt (from the root of the distribution, not from inside the
package) are actually installed.  If they are, I'd love to know where.

By default READM(.txt) is installed in a source distribution. Anything else in the root (aside from setup.py of course and source files themselves) aren't without extra setup chants. (These chants can be figured out with some effort. I never remember them, so, if I want to do something like this, I have to figure them out again or try to find an example with them.)

Actually, no package data is ever included unless you're either

* working from an svn checkout, in which case setuptools will use the list of which files are in svn and which aren't as a hint of what to include and what not

* creating a MANIFEST.in file to tell setuptools what to include explicitly.
