When using the description-file field with a README.txt, and then using the 'sdist' command, the generated PKG-INFO file will contain:

Description: UNKNOWN

Note: when using the description field with a simple string, the generated PKG-INFO file will contain the correct string.

My bad, works fine with r903:c3cf81fc64db.

Probably fixed by Gaël in changeset c8dfb3c63894.  (BTW, please never use local revision numbers for Mercurial, they’re confusing.)
