Bug Description

Even though I've marked a file to be included by adding a line to, it still shows up in the "WARNING: the following files are not recognized by" error message.

Example: file:
include AUTHORS
include COPYING
include README
include data/ui/*
include doc/*
include po/*
include bin/*

Error message:
WARNING: the following files are not recognized by

In this example, the files CHANGELOG, doc/nautilus-image-manipulator.1 and po/nautilus-image-manipulator.pot are covered by, however they are listed as not recognized. They are nonetheless present in the tarball, unlike the other non-recognized files.

The resulting tarball is correct, but I would think that those 3 files should not show up in the warning section.

FYI: Using python-distutils-extra version: 2.29-1ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 11.10

Bug 719438 also partly reports the same problem, "I should add that almost all of these files are actually listed in our". However, the focus of that other bug report is different (generation of "ERROR: Python module XXXXXX not found"), so I'd think this is not a duplicate.
