    initial v1  
    44There is no problem with `package_data` if you want to use it in the way that it was intended to be used (which may not align with actual use cases).
    55
    6 There '''is''' a problem with `data_files`: setuptools still doesn't really support that. One of the reasons that this ticket stalled was because Sage was using `data_files` at the time to install Cython-related files. You suggested that it would be easy to use `package_data` instead (#20108). That didn't actually work, but now we are using custom code (neither `data_files` not `package_data`) to install those files.
