If that is all your questions then this is the wrong place to ask. In
fact, it would then be wrong to even ask. It is only correct to read:


Don't worry, I'm not _that_ newbie, I was just talking about arch, not IT...
Thanks for pointing that document btw, it's (badly) covering one of the
questions I had.

1) Why is this "template" not used by most packages I've seen ?

2) What is the main difference between build() & the optional package()
function ? (appart the error handling)

3) Why most packages I've seen are splitting build() and package()
operations ? (build for .py? building & package for install part)

4) What is the recommended way to remove files from package ? (files that
may be required at "setup.py build" step)

Thanks for your kind support...
