[patch] mention modern-package-template
modern-package-template is a Paste script I wrote to automate the creation of the initial directory layout of a Python project using distribute, buildout, distribute_setup.py and README.txt/NEWS.txt to long_description mapping (in future, I will also add support for sphinx docs including the sphinx-pypi-upload tool). For more details, see:
I created a fork of this guide and added a couple of links to modern-package-template with the intention to point users to the tool should they want to automate the initial directory layout creation:
1/ I am not fully confident if it is complete; not sure if we have to further expand on how to install and use modern-package-template within the guide (though the PyPI page for m-p-t contains the instructions for that)
2/ I see that the guide uses CHANGES.txt. But m-p-t uses NEWS.txt (pip too uses NEWS.txt, I believe). Should we stick to a convention? If it is going to be CHANGES.txt, I will be happy to modify m-p-t accordingly.
Let me know what you think. I understand that Tarek was positive in having this added to the guide.
