Default Where to install python apps: /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/xyz??


I know nothing about python other than what it is. I need to install
repoview-0.6.5 on my arch server, but I'm not sure where. Looking at the other
python apps like cairo, FusionIcon, etc.. thay seem to be installed as a
subdirectory to:


The repoview directory contains:

drwxr-xr-x 3 david david 4096 Feb 19 13:31 templates
-rw-r--r-- 1 david david 3457 Feb 19 13:31 ChangeLog
-rw-r--r-- 1 david david 18009 Mar 3 2005 COPYING
-rw-r--r-- 1 david david 708 Jul 19 2007 README
-rw-r--r-- 1 david david 2634 Sep 27 2007 repoview.8
-rwxr-xr-x 1 david david 32932 Feb 19 13:31 repoview.py

Do I just move the directory to /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/? Then is
there something else I need to do to "register" (for lack of better words)
repoview somewhere so python knows it is there? Then what about the man page?
Anything special required to do I just move it to /usr/share/man or /usr/local/man?
