[Python-modules-team] Bug#653049: python-pip: installs some packages into /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages

Package: python-pip
Version: 1.0-1
Severity: important


I just installed the package 'tyrs' and noticed that it got installed
into /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/. This seems to go against the
Debian Python policy that requires the system Python to install
everything into dist-packages. It also means that the package can't be
found by a system Python since site-packages is not in sys.path by
default. Curiously enough the package's dependencies got correctly
installed into /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/, but not the
package itself.
