I would love an option to ignore VCS and let me specify what I want *explicitly*.
Or remove the handling of VCS?
-1. I haven't yet tried Marius' tool, but manually maintaining MANIFEST.in is an unaceptable bug magnet.
Heh. I wrote check-manifest because relying on setuptools's handling of VCS was an unacceptable bug magnet to me.
(New svn working tree format _or_ you forget to install setuptools-git on this one machine? No error, just a broken sdist.)
BTW if you use zest.releaser, check-manifest plugs into it and stops the release (well, asks if you REALLY want to continue, defaulting to "No") if your MANIFEST.in doesn't match your VCS.
