title='Make user scripts directory versioned on Windows'updated_at=<Date2015-02-14.20:10:25.814>user='https://github.com/pfmoore'
Patch to make the user scripts directory on Windows %APPDATA%\Python\PythonXY\Scripts rather than %APPDATA%\Python\Scripts.
See the thread "PEP-370 - per-user scripts directory on Windows" (Feb 10 2015) on python-dev for discussion, but essentially this is to ensure that different Python versions cannot overwrite each others' package scripts when packages are installed into the user site directory.
Not tested, as I don't yet have Visual Studio 2015 installed. I'll try to obtain and install it when I get the chance.
Cool, I've just run the tests by manually patching a 3.5a0 install. No extra failures, so things look fine. (Interestingly, before patching, test_site "altered the execution environment" but afterwards it didn't - it just succeeded. I don't know if that means anything, but I'm inclined not to worry as it definitely didn't fail.)
