(If this comes out of the blue, since the bug was opened years ago, read http://bugs.python.org/issue1083299.)

Akira is right about “depends”. Regarding “data_files”, if they’re not picked up it’s a bug. Mike, can you still reproduce it with current Python versions?

Reference: http://docs.python.org/distutils/setupscript#installing-additional-files

(Not assigning this to Distutils2 since it will have a different behavior with respect to data files, and because it’s really a bug to fix in Distutils. There can’t be any tool that depends on this bug, right?)
