setuptools_darcs plugin noise on install

Launchpad Bug:


The setuptools_darcs plugin emits a warning if you run setup.py in a directory that isn't under darcs revision control. This is because you might be trying to build a package, and if so then that package ought to contain a copy of each file which is under darcs revision control, and if this directory isn't so controlled then the setuptools_darcs plugin can't build a package.

There are two cases where it should not complain. One is if the directory contains a $PACKAGE_NAME.egg-info/SOURCES.txt file instead, as described in the relevant setuptools docs. The other is if setup.py is not being used to produce packages, but is instead being used for something else (build? install? -- I'm not sure if these commands need to know which files are "package material").

So my next step is to program setuptools_darcs to be quiet if there exists $PACKAGE_NAME.egg-info/SOURCES.txt, and then see if that makes all the noise go away so that I can close this ticket.

Thanks to Rob for prompting me to open this ticket.
