Pymel not included in maya 2024??

Why is pymel not included in maya 2024, this seems like a really strange decision.  All of our code uses pymel.

See this page for instructions on installing PyMel:

PyMEL is an open-source Python library that helps with the development of Maya extensions by providing a simplified syntax for common operations. It is developed and maintained by LUMA pictures. Autodesk does not directly support PyMEL.

First of all, I don't know why or when, but C:\Users\<your-user>\Documents\maya\2024\scripts
A site-package folder was created in Maya's scripts folder. I copied and pasted the Pymel folder into it and got it to work.

it works.

The help on the official site says that I can use it if I create a site-package folder in, C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2024\bin

Even if I copy and paste the folder with the name Pymel, I get an error message that there is no module. In other words, the help was wrong.

not working.not working.
This is really weird. Please comment if you know how it works.
