notes. We do this correctly already I believe.
I suppose that's right. What is confusing is it talks about docs 'included in the

Not sure which guideline you are referring to here but I doubt it
applies, since Beaker is pure Python.
Apparently any package that meets the following criteria (amongst possible others):
"Your package is long running. This means it's likely to be started and keep
