[New-bugs-announce] [issue14549] Recursive inclusion of packages

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:

For projects with more than a few packages, it is tedious to list all subpackages manually in setup.cfg.  There was once a find_packages in distutils2.util (copied from distribute), but when we moved away from setup.py it was removed (I don’t remember all the details).

A new field would be best if we could find a good name, or we could have special syntax in the existing packages field (like “packages = distutils2.*”).
