I am writing a package installation using distutils it is very nice but
I have it two snags:
setup.py install --prefix=<prefix>
a) Shouldn't the *.data syntax work for data_files as it does for
b) Why does it install the data files on <prefix>/foo and not in
<prefix>/share/foo like the documentation seems to imply?
Everything else seems to work as advertised scripts go to <prefix>/bin
packages to <prefix>/lib/python2.4/site-packages...
Is it me or is it a bug?
Thank you very much.
