This is a re-opening of #708 which was closed.

Since then, pypa/ has been merged and is now documented here:

I've rebased it and amended the commit messages to reflect that pypa/ was accepted.

Looks good. Can you just add a CHANGES.txt entry notifying users of what's changed and how they can use it? Also, are there relevant docs changes that need to address this functionality?

This is used to populate the new `Description-Content-Type` field.

`Description-Content-Type` is described at
Test that specifying a `long_description_content_type` keyword arg to
the `setup` function results in writing a `Description-Content-Type`
line to the `PKG-INFO` file in the `<distribution>.egg-info` directory.

@jaraco I added an entry to CHANGES.rst and updated a table in the docs which lists the available fields.

I didn't really see anywhere where the documentation goes in-depth about long_description where it felt appropriate to add more explanation about long_description_content_type, but if you feel there is a place, I am happy to add it.

It might be worth mentioning here (but not in the docs) that until this is implemented in pypa/readme_renderer, this field will not actually be very useful to the user.
