I had some newbie distutils I wanted to humbly ask if you don't mind.
I read distutils docs on python.org but still had some basic questions...
1. What goes into __init__.py files??? I know what setup.py contents are but I don't recall seeing advice on what to put in __init__.py.
2. I have a ton of data files to list in setup(...) with the data_files switch. Can I avoid listing EVERY file somehow??? Can I use a wildcard in the filename????
3. Will bdist_rpm install JUST pyc files (bytecode)??? Will sdist install JUST py (source) files??? What about installing source and bytecode?? (py and pyc)?? How do that and is THAT a good idea???
4. If I tell setup(...) I have a package somewhere with packages = ["..."] does that mean it will get ALL files in that directory without me having to specify them individually??
What if I want to OMIT a file like the CVS directory?!?!
