Arch-dependent Python libs




I'm looking at VTK, a large C++ code that also provides Python bindings. I'm wondering now where to install the Python files. From the Debian Python guidelines [1] :

> Public Python 3 modules must be installed in the system Python 3 modules directory, /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages.
> Architecture-independent public Python 3 modules must be installed to /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages.

(And likewise for Python 2.) From this, I understand that for all arches, the files go in `/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages`. Is this correct? If yet, the wording in the guidelines could probable be improved.

Cheers,
Nico
