Summary0005098: --prefix option would be useful
DescriptionGiven that now it is a BB worker which builds the site, it needs to copy all the
HTML/CSS/static files in a separate directory. The woker does that becasue it wipes the local checkout before building the site, and that erases useful files too. So the useful files are to be copied in a safer place.

A './confifure --prefix' option would save the BB worker from manually copying HTML/CSS/static file into the safer place.
TagsNo tags attached.

I don't think --prefix is the right way to do this.

Websites that are served with python are already packaged like normal python packages, either installed globally or per-user. There's nothing more we need to do there.

For websites that have just static files, the build system should produce a "dist" dir that contains all the files, and we then just need to copy this one directory instead of collecting together files manually. No need to complicate things with a --prefix argument and an "install" process that just copies data.

I've switched the sh file used in the job for stage to copy file from the directory 'rendered' which contains all files (similar to how should be build once we have a buildbot doing this). Is this what you wanted, Marcello?
