-You can also add it to upcoming builds of an existing application:
- $ heroku config:add BUILDPACK_URL=git://
-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 `` 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 `bin/`, `include/` and `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.
+ $ heroku create --buildpack git://
