Dear Admin,

According to what I see in my computer and after doing a Google search 
on the subject:


it seems that on some Debian-based Linux distributions (including Ubuntu)
the "site-packages" directory described in the site module's 
documentation pages:


has been named "dist-packages", instead of "site-packages".

Could you please insert a note about it on these documentation pages?

I will prevent some beginner developers (like me!) to make confusion.

Thank you,

Thomas Oliveira
