Description Matthew Daniels 2009-03-24 14:53:54 EDT
Spec URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~danielsmw/odfpy07/odfpy07.spec
SRPM URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~danielsmw/odfpy07/odfpy07-0.7-3.fc10.src.rpm
Description: A compat package for odfpy.  This package was created and submitted to fix a bug with mw-render, which requires odfpy 0.7.  I should also note that this is my first package, and I'd need a sponsor before I could actually get this in the repositories.
Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-03-25 10:40:45 EDT
The naming convention (I've not seen a guideline for this) appears to be to have compatibility packages be named compat-%{name} (or, more rarely, %{name}-compat). e.g. compat-db*, compat-gcc-*, compat-python24*.

How about compat-odfpy07?
Comment 2 Matthew Daniels 2009-03-25 10:53:30 EDT
The only guideline I was really going off of there was from the Naming Guidelines' example [1] about openssl and openssl096b.  I'd be happy to change it to compat-odfpy07 if that's the convention.  I'll upload a new SPEC/SRPM file as soon as I get the chance to make the edit.

Comment 3 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-04-01 21:20:01 EDT
The naming is fine.  Since there's no compile step in python, the compat-$FOO vs $FOO$VER naming is a little mixed.  I think $FOO$VER is better unless we're putting the module in some sort of private directory.
Comment 4 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-04-01 22:32:14 EDT
So, before we do this, has anyone tried submitting a port to odfpy0.8 for python-mwlibs upstream?  That's really the right thing to do.  (I'll add a patch to the python-mwlibs bug now).
Comment 5 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-06-23 18:24:31 EDT
Do we want to close this since mwlibs has been ported to the new odfpy?
Comment 6 Matthew Daniels 2009-10-07 21:21:34 EDT
This package became irrelevant when Ian Weller updated mw-render anyway, so I'm closing the bug request.
