The buildpack will detect your app as Python if it has the file
requirements.txt in the root. It will detect your app as Python/Django if there is an additional
settings.py in a project subdirectory.
It will use virtualenv and pip to install your dependencies, vendoring a copy of the Python runtime into your slug. The
lib/ directories will be cached between builds to allow for faster pip install time.
To use this buildpack, fork it on Github. Push up changes to your fork, then create a test app with
--buildpack <your-github-url> and push to it.
To change the vendored virtualenv, unpack the desired version to the
src/ folder, and update the virtualenv() function in
bin/compile to prepend the virtualenv module directory to the path. The virtualenv release vendors its own versions of pip and setuptools.
