"Where are my site-packages stored?"
Something like this should be added to that section:

python -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print get_python_lib()"

and that section should be referenced lower on the page under "Installing the development version" where almost 1/2 the text is about finding the site-packages dir.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

Adding something like this would be a good idea. It's compatible all the way back to 2.3. Care to write up a patch (against docs/install.txt)?
