            Bug ID: 430
           Summary: default practice is to use "python setup.py develop"
           Product: Libre-SOC's first SoC
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: ---
         Component: Source Code
          Assignee: lkcl at lkcl.net
          Reporter: lkcl at lkcl.net

+python3 setup.py install
+cd ../nmutil
+python3 setup.py install
+cd ../ieee754fpu
+git submodule update --init --recursive
+python3 setup.py install
+cd ../nmigen-soc
+python3 setup.py install

is there a reason why "install" is used instead of the default practice,

"develop" allows in-place editing of the code actively under development,
whereas "install" is a forced *copying* of the code into a system-wide
location that is not in any way conveniently editable and definitely not
under source revision control management.
