...which is kinda annoying :-(
The problem is, in Python 2.6.2, line 357 of sdist.py.
This ends up applying the following:
exclude_pattern: applying regex r'^build.*'
...which of course chomps buildout.cfg, with no possibility to add it back in MANIFEST.in :-(
Where does the bug lie and should I submit a bug tracker issue?
