Hi !

when specifying additional files to be distributed by distutils.core.setup, documentation says that:

"Each file name in files is interpreted relative to the script at the top of the package source distribution. No directory information from files is used to determine the final location of the installed file; only the name of the file is used"


Well, this seems to be incorrect - I tried to specify a file from a higher level directory, which get's copies to a target based on the whole path I specified, not just the name...

Pls. see attached file for details
