cd() documentation mentions that default working directory on the remote side is $HOME.

But lcd() doc is silent about default working dir for local(). Is it a location or cwd or anything random?


It looks like the default working dir is current working directory at the time of fab invocation. That means it's random.


That's not random, that's os.getcwd() :) I don't think it's worth changing to be hooked to the fabfile location or anything, but I agree it should be explicitly documented.
