> The develop command writes three pieces of information to the filesystem:

> the package's root directory.
>  2. It calls the [build|install]_distinfo action to write the
> .dist-info metadata inside the build directory. (see also Issue 12279)
>  3. It adds the build directory's path to a .pth file.

You are right, what you listed above are also the things done by the
'develop' command of my current implementation. In addition, as I replied
earlier, we can also add a .distinfo-link file  more than the .pth file.
