Is there a way for "smt" to run code outside of version control area?

I have a case where I want to supply frozen releases of our code which will run from some installed location and not in any version controlled directory.

So far I tried a few naive things but it seems Sumatra really doesn't want me to do this.

1) Tried just "smt init" and "smt run" in a bare directory.  This complains about lack of version control.

2) Tried making a "dummy" Git repo but "smt run" complains my frozen release isn't under the smt project directory.

Answering myself:

3) Use "smt run -e /path/to/release/ ..."

In my other tests I was still using "-e python3" and "-m

Giving the script as the executable instead of the "main" lets that
script live outside of a repository.


PS: thanks for sumatra. It is a very nice system.
