I am able to make the tar archive, with distutils and it contains everything needed. After doing:
python setup.py sdist
I unpacked the archive it created and tried
python setup.py install
but none of the files in package_data get copied. This is particularly a problem for the glade file in gtk. The qt GUI seems to load, but only relies on py files, which are treated correctly.
I have uploaded the tarball to sourceforge, with version 1.0.1, git is also in synch with my local repos maybe it works for you.
