Just a week after the release of v0.17.1, here is v0.17.2, it fixes a single but rather important bug. The source distribution, as it was uploaded to pypi, was badly broken: it did not include fundamental files, so the package did not build at all. The problem was reported in issue 115
The bug was present forever actually, the MANIFEST file automatically generated by distutils did include everything, for instance test data files were missing. Things just get worse after the code refactoring that happened in v0.17.1
Now the setup.py file has been modified to generate the MANIFEST from Git itself, using git ls-files, so we don’t miss anything else again.
