I see that distutils2 promotes storing documentation in docs/ directory while Python sources use Doc/ I'd like to see this changed before distutils2 is released beta.
What does "promotes" mean? That only docs/ can be used?
upload_docs command will extract documentation from 'docs/' by default. I wouldn't bring this question if it could also process 'doc/' in cases where 'docs/' are absent. You can specify upload directory explicitly, but sometimes you'd really like it to just work.
Yes it should definitely use doc/ if docs/ is missing. However, upload_docs never quite works out of the box for me anyway. First, it insists on an index.html file, which my Sphinx builds never seem to write, so I always have to add a symlink. Second, it doesn't seem to play nicely with the location that my buildout-based builds puts the docs, so I always also have to use --upload-dir. Yes, it would be nice if both of these problems were fixed too. Yes, I should report them as bugs (or just fix 'em ;).
