No problem, welcome on board!

I need to change the python installation location on my target from /usr/bin and /usr/lib to somewhere under /media.
I have searched around online and tried looking in the recipe:
Whats the reasoning behind this? If its meant to be a work-around for
"my custom software totally wants it in that location", then you're
probably better off fixing your custom software to stick to canonical
paths. If its about partitioning schemes, other techniques might
apply. If its about being able to upgrade/modify python independently
from the system, then you probably want some root-in-root or container
build. But randomly picing a complex package that has system-wide
implications and saying "I want it here, screw the FHS" is not a good
idea usually.
