>I don't think sdist will automatically add any files to the manifest for you,

Quoting from sdist.py standard files added are
- README or README.txt
- all pure Python modules mentioned in setup script
- all C sources listed as part of extensions or C libraries
in the setup script (doesn't catch C headers!)

python setup.py clean --all
deletes the 'build' directory and all temporary 'dist' files. It does not
clean generated Distributions packages in 'dist'.
