      Description

      TVB_Distribution /tvb_data/….site-packages/tvb_data is the location added
      to the PYTHON_PATH (when starting python from TVB_Distribution).
      This is the location from where ipynb tutorials are loading their data
      (e.g Connectivity(load_default=True)), as it can be used in python
      imports.
      From this location also DefaultProject is being loaded, and before the
      release I tried to verify that every piece of data referred from
      tutorials is being correctly copied there.

      TVB_Distribution/demo_data contains only few pieces of data. The
      intention was to have it easily accessible by GUI users when they try an
      importer from web interface.

      As it raises this question, maybe we should rethink this decision (which
      was taken so long time ago), to avoid possible confusions.
      Possible solutions for the next release:

      • create a link on top level, towards the site-packages/tvb_data, or
      • add the top level in PYTHON_PATH directly (we should test if this can
        work with py2app as well)
