I tried to add to `setuptools.setup()` the argument license_files. It works, but I get this warning:

/usr/lib/python3.6/distutils/ UserWarning: Unknown distribution option: 'license_files'

I suppose the warning can be removed.

Why do you think the warning can be removed? Is it documented as supported in distutils? If setuptools supports that argument but not distutils then that would be a bug against them.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
