I unzipped it in a download directory, changed the directory to that
folder, and ran the commands again...and it did not put a matplotlib
folder under site-packages. Is there a step-by-step method on the
website that shows how to do this?
But all I really want is the changes that Jae Joon made as mentioned
above. Is there a way to just grab them from the new folders? (I
thought not because the folder structure from what I downloaded from
git master doesn't match the folder structure I had from mpl 1.0,
downloaded from the main mpl page).
