Ticket #18748, comment 25
initial v1 1 1 Replying to [comment:23 vbraun]: 2 2 > You didn't complain about `sagedownloadfile` being in `src/bin/`, so why complain now? 3 We currently have only 1 place to put scripts and that's in `$SAGE_ROOT/src/bin`. You're creating a second place, so it makes to think what is the best location. After this ticket is merged, we should move more scripts to `sage_bootstrap/bin`, in particular `sagespkg` and maybe even `$SAGE_ROOT/build/install` and `$SAGE_ROOT/build/pipestatus`. If `sage_bootstrap` would be in `$SAGE_ROOT/build`, that would lead to a clean separation of the complete build system for packages in `$SAGE_ROOT/build`.3 We currently have only 1 place to put scripts and that's in `$SAGE_ROOT/src/bin`.

That's a mess. This ticket creates an opportunity to start cleaning this up, let's do it right from the beginning.
