you know this question might seems strange, but I'd like to avoid some
examples to be built when creating documentation.
Those examples are the one using mpl.cbook.get_sample_data() to
retrieve data files from the remote svn. In Debian we are not allowed
to prepare a package that downloads "stuff" from the web, so I have to
The fastest solution I see is to actually exclude them from the list
of the examples to build (but still install them, for users to use),
but I didn't understand how
Another solution would be for you to ship those datafile into the
released tarball, so that it's all consistent and then point the
example to those files, but how? if you find this in some way
unacceptable, I can also download those files separately and add them
when preparing the Debian package, but I have to find a way to tell
get_sample_data() to point to that location...
...and so I'm asking you: what would you feel to be the best solution?
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions,
