     All non-alphanumeric runs are condensed to single "-" characters, such that
     a name like "The $$$ Tree" becomes "The-Tree".  Note that if you are

-    with underscores ("_") because setuptools and the distutils
+    generating a filename from this value you should combine it with a call to
+    ``to_filename()`` so all dashes ("-") are replaced by underscores ("_").
+    See ``to_filename()``.

  * Fix cache dir defaults on Windows when multiple environment vars are needed
    to construct a path.
  * Fix "dev" versions being considered newer than release candidates.
