Thanks.  Shouldn't we do a cvs remove MANIFEST in that case and remove

BTW, I just updated my copy of the cvs tree and removed the manifest
file in my local copy and now get this error:

$ python setup.py sdist -d /tmp
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 126, in ?
  File "setup.py", line 85, in install_package
  File "/skratch/prabhu/scipy/cvs/scipy/setup_scipy.py", line 8, in configuration
    config = default_config_dict()
  File "scipy_distutils/misc_util.py", line 247, in default_config_dict
    if full_name:
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'full_name' referenced before assignment

So i added a full_name="" in the function and it seems to work okay.
I've commited this trivial change to CVS.

The sdist seems to build fine.  I havent checked to see if this really
works properly or not but I guess it should.  

For some reason gui_thread.tests is commented out in


Can this be uncommented or is it there for a reason?

Also, the tutorial directory is not packaged as part of the sdist.  Is
this by design?
