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:
https://help.autodesk.com/view/MAYAUL/2024/ENU/?guid=GUID-2AA5EFCE-53B1-46A0-8E43-4CD0B2C72FB4

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.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.

This is really weird. Please comment if you know how it works.
