distutils directory problem

Hi,

I have the following problem with the distutils package:
(I have now spent hours reading and searching the manuals and tutorials,
and I am still stuck.)

I have a working directory
~/pyspread
in which my libraries are situated and two icons directories
~/pyspread/icons and ~/pyspread/icons/actions

Now I would like to create a setup.py file inside my ~/pyspread
directory that installs my .py modules in .../site-packages/pyspread
and the icons in appropriate sub-folders and adds pyspread.pth to
..../site-packages so that .../site-packages/pyspread is in the
PYTHONPATH.

However, my setup.py puts everything (including .pyc files) into
site-packages *and* into the sub-folders. What am I doing wrong?

I am looking for a platform-independent solution. Currently, I am using
python 2.5 on Linux.

Here my setup.py

#!/usr/bin/env python

from distutils.core import setup
setup(name='pys pread',
version='0.0.7' ,
description='A spreadsheet that accepts a pure python expression in each cell.',
license='GPL v3 :: GNU General Public License',
classifiers=[ 'Development Status :: 3 - Alpha',
'Intended Audience :: End Users/Desktop',
],
author='Martin Manns',
au************* *****@gmx.net',
url='http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyspread/',
packages=['pyspread'],
package_dir={'p yspread': '.'},
scripts=['pyspread.py'],
py_modules=['pyspread.maina pp', 'pyspread.pysgr id', 'pyspread.mygri d','pyspread.ic ontheme'],
package_data={' pyspread': ['icons/*.png', 'icons/actions/*.png' ,\
'test.pys', 'test.csv', 'test2.csv', \
'README', 'COPYING']},
)
Thanks in advance

I highly recommend re-posting this to the distutils group. They have
some excellent people over there that can probably tell you quite
quickly what the issue is:

Some time ago, I got the idea that I wanted to build image resources from vector graphic originals, instead of marshalling hundreds of tiny little icon images by hand. I wrote "BuildImage" to do this for me, and so far, it works very well, so I'm trying to make it easier to use and available to more developers. There is a brief (and somewhat dated) tutorial explaining what BuildImage itself does at:

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
