New submission from Hartmut Goebel <htgoebel at users.sourceforge.net>:

In Python 2.5 distutils has a bug in bdist_rpm:

Generated distribution files are not listed in
``distribution.dist_files``. Thus .rpms can not be handled by other
tools, eg. ``upload``.

I need this bug fixed for automated upload of files using

Enclosed please find a simple package to show the bug. Just run

    python setup.py bdist_rpm

and watch the (missing) output. In contrast see the output of

    python setup.py sdist

While untested, this should effect distutils ``upload`` command. RPMs
are not in the dist_files list and when looking at the source, there
seams to be no 'trick' to add them later.
