Right now setuptools uses setup.cfg only for configuration options of commands, e.g.
python setup.py build_ext --inplace
is equal to
in setup.cfg. Why not allow users to define most of the configuration options to the setup command inside setup.cfg? It seems there was some effort done in disutils2 to allow that. As the maintainer of PyScaffold, I implemented my own logic but have a strong feeling that setuptools should directly implement this. Having a purely declarative way of defining the settings for 95% of all use cases would help beginners and intermediate Python developers a lot.
@embray Thanks a lot, while d2t1 looks quite abandoned, pbr seems to do the job judging from the description. I'll check it out. But still, shouldn't this functionality be directly included into setuptools?
