Where does the executable belong? Where does the submit wrapper belong?

I have a tool, and an svn locker for it on the hub. I can see from the other examples that tool.xml and my rappture tcl wrapper belong in


In what directory do I put the binary executable? In what directory do I put the submit tcl script?

    In most cases any source code that needs to be compiled belongs in the src directory. The src directory should also contain a Makefile with targets for install and clean. The install target is responsible for building the binary executable from source code and placing it in the bin directory. Avoid keeping executable binaries in the repository. The clean target is responsible for removing temporary files generated doing the install.

    Common general purpose applications that might be usable across several applications can be placed in the /apps directory by HUB personnel.
