Why do Fedora python packages install in site-packages?
I'm confused why Fedora Python packages get installed in
Looking at the upstream Python documentation it seems this
directory is reserved for packages installed by the local system
administrator. (Similar to the Perl distinction between
INSTALLDIRS=vendor / INSTALLDIRS=site / INSTALLDIRS=core )
Not directly relevant, but Debian reserves site-packages for the
system administrator, and puts Python packages in its own directory
Is this a mistake or am I not understanding the distinction?
