@keflavich Regarding tests for astroquery/nasa_ads, any idea for a good remote test?

for remote tests, I usually check that the number of hits is >= some number, under the assumption that number of sources (number of publications, whatever) can increase but not decrease

I'm trying to make the Gammapy 0.2 release today following the instructions at http://astropy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/development/affiliated-packages.html#releasing-an-affiliated-package.
One issue I have is that the release tarball contains .pyc and _pycache files in the astropyhelpers folder: gammapy-0.2/astropyhelpers/astropy_helpers/commands/__init.pyc
Is there a missing step to clean the astropy_helpers sub-module in the release instructions?

Found the solution: put global-exclude as here: https://github.com/astropy/package-template/blob/master/MANIFEST.in
