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.
In my projects checkouts there are 80 project that use doc/ directories. Among these are: - subversion - hg - sphinx - trac - scons - twisted
docs/ directory is used by 61 project, the most famous are: - xalan - fop - moinmoin - cmd2 - googlecl
There are some arguments for 'doc/': 1. there is no plural for 'documentation' 2. bin/ is a common name for storing executables, although there is plural for 'binary' 3. we still use src/ instead of sources/
Any thoughts/objections? -- anatoly t.
