build_py does not handle package_data properly #261
In my project I use a pattern that would match directories as well:
As a result, setuptools fails as it can't copy directories.
After a bit of investigation, I found that the problematic code is in build_py. While checking the content of distutils (which is part of CPython), the corresponding code looks different and it does not fail.
