New question #401544 on Graphite:

While attempting to automate installation of a Graphite server with Puppet, I 
noticed the following behavior:

When I install Carbon and Graphite Web from the default pip package repository, 
PyPI, the packages are installed by default to 
`/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/`. For example:

    pip install carbon==0.9.15
    pip install graphite-web==0.9.15

results in packages installed to the following directories (on Ubuntu 16.04 


However, when I instead install the _exact_ same versions of Carbon and 
Graphite Web from GitHub:

    pip install
    pip install

The packages end up in `/opt/graphite`:


Why is this? Why does it matter where I'm getting the package from given that 
I'm installing the exact same version of each package (0.9.15) each time? Is 
there a way to get the `/opt` style installation behavior using the regular 
PyPI packages?
