A proper way to include this data file to distribution would be to use
method in scipy/base/setup.py file. However, since there is already
that includes all files in tests/ directory to distribution, nothing needs
to be done for testdata.fits. You can check this via
python setup.py sdist
and check the generated dist/scipy_core*.tag.gz file.
