bdist_wheel should start by cleaning up its build directory #147
bdist_wheel does not clean up its build directory making it easy to include obsolete/unwanted files.
On python 2.7, if you run
It can be quite unsettling, since it bypasses, all MANIFEST or find_packages rules...
It would seem cleaner and safer to simply start from a fresh directory and delete it afterwards.
Same problem here Pylons/pyramid#2525
Used a stale build folder and had no idea that bdist_wheel would ignore setuptools-git. Honestly the best approach would be to just take the sdist and convert to a wheel, since the sdist does what I want.
I have the same issue. It's very annoying, because you usually notice the obsolete modules/packages after publishing. So you have to bump version num again, re-build, re-publish, etc...
