Well, to be honest, I wonder how you can mess up with the
classifiers. I just always copy them from http://pypi.python.org/
pypi?%3Aaction=list_classifiers. Anything else is just insane...
The classifiers are a PITA. I suspect we should be very restrictive
in using them.
It's especially annoying that release status can generally be
inferred from the version number.
I'm beginning to wonder if we should have some setuptools extensions
that automate some of these things,
Another idea I've been thinking about is a custom index that is used
rather than PyPI. The main motivation was to automate management of
non-public distributions, but such a front end could also automate
some aspects of releases that setuptools doesn't handle.
But, if you wish for such a tool, let your wish be my command. With
the attached verifyclassifiers.py script, you may do so using the
python setup.py --classifiers | python verifyclassifiers.py
