Can this be simpler?
Yes. Don't install docs with your package. People who want them installed locally can just download your source install or use
Also, if your module is popular enough that people make Linux system packages for it, they will make sure the docs get put in a blessed
location. Python doesn't currently have a blessed install location for documentation, though perhaps it *should* have one in distutils2.
How to include documentation in a package is a common question, so it
be great if distutils2 could deal with this issue.
As a matter of fact, we've worked on this during the sprints, and are preparing a proposal that will let people define a place for doc (and other stuff) and let the OS packager decide where it lands (with defaults per OS).
I'll post if there when its ready, hopefully soon
That sounds great.
