# Don't use virtualenv bin that doesn't exist yet

I wonder if we should be running this from /tmp or something else that isn't in the checkout. I guess we aren't always sure any other path will exist (unless we make one w/ the tempfile module), so this seems fine. But I do wonder if we'll hit other issues at some point (eg. if we add our own pyproject.toml` file for RTD?

Do the docker containers have access to the rtd code? I don't think so. But, yeah, using /tmp sounds better. People running this outside docker could have some problems I think, but I'm less worried about that. Should I go for plain /tmp or create one with the tempfile module?

Ah good point, I forgot about Docker not having access. I think we can just go with $HOME for now, because it feels overkill (and could lead to errors) to create a temp directory.
