You do it at install time. In other words, it's not up to the author of
‘’ to decide; it's for the administrator installing your package
(or whoever set the defaults on that specific machine) to decide where
it goes.

See <URL:> for the
instructions to the Setuptools user on how to install a distribution.

This is nonsense (you are deliberately sending the message to a public
forum and thus the message is not confidential). Please stop using a
system that adds this boilerplate rubbish, and/or convince your system
administrators to remove it when sending to public forums.
