Take some notes about the ‘develop’ command

There is a fierce arguing about the implementation way of ‘develop’ command in packaging and folks have not reach a consensus yet, so I write this post just for taking some notes about the ‘develop’ command from the discussing in the mailing list, which maybe already made a little clear now at some extent and will help me not fall into this chaos in future.

* ‘develop’ is just a kind of command rather than an action
* ‘develop’ is just a kind of install command, but in a very different way
* ‘develop’ should not be taken as an option of install, because it just take a local source directory as a valid source, no PYPI or VCS support, thus ‘install –**’ is not a good choice for use
* ‘develop’ command should not be a subcommand of the install action, because it work in a very different way, thus the name install_* is not a good choice
