Hi,

What is the best way to incorporate manpages in a distutils setup.py
script?

Is there any distro-independent way to find the most appropriate place to
put the manpages?
For instance, /usr/man/? /usr/share/man? /usr/local/man?
/usr/local/share/man?

Also - I've got .html conversions of the manpages, for the benefit of OSs
such as Windows which don't natively support manpages. What's the best
place to put these?

aum
