[Distutils] install_requires vs requires

I am working on a new packaging solution, and I want to convert
existing setup.py. I noticed that the install_requires as used by
setuptools is not put into PKG-INFO as requires. Is this expected ?
What is the difference between requires and require_install ? What
happens when both have different values ?
