Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 994307
pip should install to a separate space than standard packages
Last modified: 2016-01-04 09:45:45 EST
pip is a separate system to rpm, and it's strange and problematic to have pip install python projects to the standard package space.
debian for example does it correctly IMHO by installing to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ rather than /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
Perhaps python would need to be modified also to add /usr/local/...
to the sys.path _before_ /usr/...
Please see here for some issues in having these conflicting areas:
