Originally reported by: ikelos (Bitbucket: ikelos, GitHub: ikelos)

This upstream bug (fixed in to 2010) resolved the need to create a file as well as list data_files in the This does not appear to have been fixed in setuptools, and as such sdist and similar functions fail to include the appropriate files on machines that have setuptools, but not those that don't, when a fallback import system is used...

Would it be possible to align the two again so that setuptools is again a drop-in replacement for distutils?

Sounds like the right thing to do. A pull request would be most appreciated.
