    The Lion version of the OS on the Mac comes with Python 2.7 installed, but it is in /System/Library/Frameworks/..., and this area is not writable by third party apps.

    So is there a consensus on what apps that typically install under the Python site-packages directory should do in this situation? Installing Python from python.org puts it in the writable area /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework.

    So, what should a Python app installer do?

    Thanks
    Hello,

    currently I have:

    /Library/Python/2.7/
    /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/
    /Users/user/Library/Python/2.7/

    With 3 folders "site-packages" and do not know why.
    What's the difference?

    Thanks.

    If I had to take a guess, having not played too much with Lion:

    /Library/Python/2.7 is for user-installed packages for the system
    python that are installed for all users.
    /Library/Frameworks/... is for the user-installed Python (that's where
    it's always gone)
    /Users/user/Library... is for user-installed packages for the system
    Python that are only installed for the specific user.
