Description Pádraig Brady 2013-08-06 22:56:03 EDT
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:

Duplicate of bug 662034 ?

Yep good spot.
This aspect is best summarised in bug 662034#c8
