Distribution: mention pip install directly from Github? #211

The contents of the lesson is: create project, upload to pypi, install from pypi

I think not every project is so generally useful to be present on pypi. Lot of the time it is just enough to pip install from Github or other source.

Therefore I propose the lesson should contain info that you can install just directly from Github without prior uploading to pypi. What do you think? :)

Might be useful. The problem is that github tarball sometimes contains more things than the sdist tarball. Hence testpypi is used here to check if everything works fine.

However, if you mention that problem in a note, I guess such contribution would be useful.
