Conda - Package
Python - Packages (Archive, Distribution) in the context of the conda application

A conda package is a tarball or bzipped tar archive, with the extension “.tar.bz2”, which contains :
- metadata under the info/ directory
- and a collection of files that are installed directly into an install prefix.
