[Chicago] python setup.py sdist -does not include all files under revision

I'm trying to make a release and would like to upload tar.gz file to launchpad.
After some searching I found out that this command should get that done for me:

python setup.py sdist

Unfortunately it does not include all files in the package/ files
under revision.

I've installed setuptools_bzr in a hope that
python setup.py sdist
would include all the folders I have included in my package.

Unfortunately that is not the case.

If I go back to the some previous version that is till in svn then it
seems to work correctly and include every file.

Any ideas how can I make this work with bzr -> launchpad.
