uses for setup.cfg and extracting data from it
Hi All,

Do people generally source control their package's setup.cfg? sort of implies it
should be editable by the person installing the package, but I've never
personally used a package where that's the case...

Assuming the distutils docs are out of date and this file is really
"owned" by the package maintainer, how do I extract information from it
in (and elsewhere for that matter!)

I'm looking for somewhere consistent to store the following for all my

- mailing lists url

- issue tracker url

- change log url

- documentation url

....such that I can generate a sensible long_description for use on PyPI
but also such that I can include the information in the Sphinx docs...
