- Drop Python 3.6 support.
- Exclude more common dev/test files
- Add Python 3.10 support.
- Switch to tomli instead of toml, after hearing about PEP-680. tomli will be included in the Python 3.11 standard library as tomllib, while toml is apparently unmaintained.
- Fix submodule support when
.gitmodulesexists in a subdirectory (#153). Note that this reverts a fix for #124: git versions before 2.11 are no longer supported.
setuptools_scmworkaround for packages with dashes in the name (#145).
- The pre-commit hook now always uses Python 3.
- Add Python 3.9 support.
- Drop Python 3.5 support.
- Switch from
pep517to python-build ( #128).
--no-build-isolationoption so check-manifest can succeed building pep517-based distributions without an internet connection. With
--no-build-isolation, you must preinstall the
build-system.requiresbeforehand. ( #128).
- Try to avoid passing
git lsif the project doesn't use git submodules (i.e. doesn't have a
.gitsubmodulesfile). This should make check-manifest work again with older git versions, as long as you don't use submodules (#124).
- Fix collecting files versioned by
gitwhen a project has submodules and
GIT_INDEX_FILEis set. This bug was triggered when
check-manifestwas run as part of a git hook ( #122, #123).
Note: check-manifest 0.43 requires
git version 2.11 or later.
--quietcommand line argument. This will reduce the verbosity of informational output, e.g. for use in a CI pipeline.
Rewrote the ignore logic to be more compatible with setuptools. This might have introduced some regressions, so please file bugs! One side effect of this is that
ignoresetting in the config file) is now handled the same way as
MANIFEST.in, which means:
- it's matched anywhere in the file tree
- it's ignored if it matches a directory
You can ignore directories only by ignoring every file inside it. You can use
--ignore=dir/**to do that.
This decision is not cast in stone: I may in the future change the handling of
--ignoreto match files and directories, because there's no reason it has to be setuptools-compatible.
Drop Python 2.7 support.
- Support PEP 517, i.e. packages using pyproject.toml instead of a setup.py (#105).
- Ignore subcommand stderr unless the subcommand fails. This avoids treating warning messages as filenames. (#110.)
- Add Python 3.8 support.
- Add Python 3.7 support.
- Drop Python 3.4 support.
- Added GitHub templates to default ignore patterns.
- Added reading check-manifest config out of
Drop Python 3.3 support.
Support packages using
setuptools_scmusually makes MANIFEST.in files obsolete. Having one is helpful only if you intend to build an sdist and then use that sdist to perform further builds, instead of building from a source checkout.
- Handle empty VCS repositories more gracefully (#84).
- Python 3.6 support.
- Fix WindowsError due to presence of read-only files (#74).
- Fix WindowsError due to git submodules in subdirectories (#73). Contributed by Loren Gordon.
- New config/command line option to ignore bad ideas (ignore-bad-ideas) (issue #67). Contributed by Brecht Machiels.
- Files named
.hgsigsare ignored by default. Contributed by Jakub Wilk.
- Drop Python 3.2 support.
- Ignore commented-out lines in MANIFEST.in (issue #66).
- Support git submodules (issue #61).
- Revert the zc.buildout support hack from 0.26 because it causes breakage (issue #56).
- Improve non-ASCII filename handling with Bazaar on Windows.
- Fix --python with just a command name, to be found in path (issue #57).
- Fix detection of git repositories when .git is a file and not a directory (#53). One situation where this occurs is when the project is checked out as a git submodule.
- Apply ignore patterns in subdirectories too (#54).
- Fix utter breakage on Windows, introduced in 0.26 (issue #52). (The bug -- clearing the environment unnecessarily -- could probably also cause locale-related problems on other OSes.)
- Do not complain about missing
.gitattributesfile (PR #50).
- Normalize unicode representation and case of filenames. (issue #47).
- Support installation via zc.buildout better (issue #35).
- Drop Python 2.6 support because one of our test dependencies (mock) dropped it. This also means we no longer use environment markers.
- Stop dynamic computation of install_requires in setup.py: this doesn't work well in the presence of the pip 7 wheel cache. Use PEP-426 environment markers instead (this means we now require setuptools >= 0.7, and pip >= 6.0, and wheel >= 0.24).
- Make sure
setup.pynot being added to the VCS doesn't cause hard-to-understand errors (issue #46).
- More reliable svn status parsing; now handles svn externals (issue #45).
- The test suite now skips tests for version control systems that aren't installed (issue #42).
- More terse output by default; use the new
--verbose) flag to see all the details.
- Warn the user if MANIFEST.in is missing (issue #31).
- Fix IOError when files listed under version control are missing (issue #32).
- Improved wording of the match/do not match messages (issue #34).
- Handle a relative --python path (issue #36).
- Warn about leading and trailing slashes in MANIFEST.in (issue #37).
- Ignore .travis.yml by default (issue #39).
- Suggest a rule for Makefile found deeper in the source tree.
- Don't drop setup.cfg when copying version-controlled files into a clean temporary directory (issue #29).
- Restore warning about files included in the sdist but not added to the version control system (issue #27).
check-manifest relative/pathname(issue #28).
- More correct MANIFEST.in parsing for exclusion rules.
- Some effort was expended towards Windows compatibility.
- Handles non-ASCII filenames, as long as they're valid in your locale (issue #23, #25).
- Friendlier error message when an external command cannot be found (issue #21).
- Add suggestion pattern for .coveragerc.
- Python 2.6 support (issue #22).
- Read the existing MANIFEST.in file for files to ignore (issue #19).
- Fix Subversion status parsing in the presence of svn usernames longer than 12 characters (issue #18).
- Normalize the paths of all files, avoiding some duplicate misses of directories. (issue #16). [maurits]
- Supports packages that do not live in the root of a version control repository (issue #15).
- More reliable svn support: detect files that have been added but not committed (or committed but not updated).
- Licence changed from GPL (v2 or later) to MIT (issue #12).
- New command line option: --ignore (issue #11). Contributed by Steven Myint.
- New command line option: -p, --python. Defaults to the Python you used to run check-manifest. Fixes issues with packages that require Python 3 to run setup.py (issue #13).
- Add suggestion pattern for Makefile.
- More generic suggestion patterns, should cover almost anything.
- zest.releaser integration: skip check-release for non-Python packages (issue #9).
- Make sure
MANIFEST.inis not ignored even if it hasn't been added to the VCS yet (issue #7).
check-manifest --versionnow prints the version number.
- Don't apologize for not adding rules for directories (especially after adding rules that include files inside that directory).
- Python 3 support contributed by Steven Myint.
- Default ignore patterns can be configured in
- Add suggestion pattern for .travis.yml.
- When check-manifest -u (or -c) doesn't know how to write a rule matching a particular file, it now apologizes explicitly.
- Copy the source tree to a temporary directory before running python setup.py sdist to avoid side effects from setuptools plugins or stale *.egg-info/SOURCES.txt files (issue #1).
- Warn if *.egg-info or *.mo is actually checked into the VCS.
- Don't complain if *.mo files are present in the sdist but not in the VCS (issue #2).
- Entry point for zest.releaser. If you install both zest.releaser and check-manifest, you will be asked if you want to check your manifest during
- First release available from the Python Package Index.
- Moved from https://gist.github.com/4277075 to https://github.com/mgedmin/check-manifest
- Added README.rst, CHANGES.rst, setup.py, tox.ini (but no real tests yet), MANIFEST.in, and a Makefile.
- Fixed a bug in error reporting (when setup.py failed, the user would get TypeError: descriptor '__init__' requires an 'exceptions.Exception' object but received a 'str').
