Add document describing how to create executable scripts to the dev guide

    Details

    • Urgent?:
      No

      Description

      There currently is no document in the developer guide that describes how to create an executable script following our "code in `python/script/`, nearly-empty executable in bin.src" convention. We have a community post with links describing how to document such a script, but no central location for someone writing a new script.

      I'm not sure if this should go under `Python` or `DM Stack` in the dev guide.

            I'd vote for "DM Stack" since I think the solution will end up being deeply integrated with how the Stack (like Science Pipelines) is architected.

            Other DM Python code, that uses setuptools for instance, would use a different way of writing executable scripts.

            So it doesn't get lost, there's a discussion of all the advantages of the current convention on #dm-middleware.
