warning: sdist: manifest template '' does not exist (using default file list)

not writing to manually maintained manifest file 'MANIFEST'

Creating tar archive
removing 'foobar-1.0' (and everything under it)


Note, the MANIFEST should have been read and the resulting tar file should have had my_special_file in it. sdist complains about a missing template which it shouldn't, it should use the existing MANIFEST, it also emits a warning about not overwriting a manually maintained MANIFEST which it shouldn't. It should just use the existing MANIFEST.
