including ez_setup in sdist output
The following answers the question I was about to post. Consequently, I am going to attempt to create a patch for setuptools that gives it svk support since I rather dislike using svn itself (see http://svk.elixus.org/) :)

They are included when I do "setup.py bdist_egg", but for now I'd rather distribute using traditional tarballs. Am I doing something wrong?
Also, the README is magically included in the sdist tarball no matter what I do, but I'd like to include COPYING, AUTHORS, etc. Is there a "correct" way to do this? Thanks,
By default, setuptools will include any file under Subversion or CVS revision control in the source distribution. If you're not using one of those revision control tools, you have to use the standard distutils MANIFEST.in rules file to specify what files to include in the source distribution. See here for more details:
