Hi there,
I found two problems using setuptools 0.6c8 in conjunction with suversion 1.5

1. the file setuptools/commands/sdist.py checks for '8' as the start of an 
svn.entires file (line 89). in subversion 1.5 this is '9'.
2. it the tries to log a warning, but log is not imported (line 98).

I changed '8' to '9' and all works fine again. seems no further changes in the 
structure of the file have been incoorporated that would affect the working of 

thanks for your great tools
