Correct.  I tried finding which part of the doc hinted about that to see
if I could improve it and could not find it!  Do you have the link?

Manifests and manifests templates are only used by the sdist command.
If you run “python setup.py sdist -h”, you’ll find the --template/-t option.

MANIFEST and MANIFEST.in can’t be found from the index pages in the
Python docs; I will fix that.
