On the importance of case-insensitivity

…I just spent a day and a bit trying to figure out why setuptools (and distribute) refused to pick up package data. Namely, templates in a Django website.

The reason?

I had “Manifest.in” instead of “MANIFEST.in” in my project folder.

On the upside, I won’t be making that mistake again.

On the downside, FIX YOUR SOFTWARE.

The world thanks you.
