The releases are on Pypi for quite some time. I converted the repo to
git and put it on github, but I have not really worked on numscons for
several months now for lack of time ( and because numscons it mostly
"done" and the main limitations of numscons are not fixable without
fixing some fairly major scons limitations).

Basically, the repo on github is only the convertion from bzr, without
any new features.

That's strange, you are not the first one to mention this bug, but I
never had this problem myself - I myself never use setupegg except
when creating eggs for pypi.

cheers,

David
