depdist.sh will be used to create a dist/ directory which should be
moved to the sagenb spkg directory and renamed to src/ .
fetch_deps.py is a helper script for depdist.sh which uses distribute
internals to fetch package tarballs from PyPI.
`setup.py sdist` doesn't copy empty directories, as I found out after
a lot of head scratching. This breaks git repos, so we can't trust sdist
to copy our git repo into the source tarball of sagenb. So we'll store
the git repo separately as sagenb.git , and move it into place when
This old advice for release management of sagenb was in the SPKG.txt and
was generally out of date. Since the SPKG will now only contain a bunch
of tarballs, a lot of those instructions don't make much sense there, so
I've moved them to the sagenb README for now.
