Description Ian Weller 2012-02-13 14:55:13 EST
python-py bundles the apipkg module.

This module has recently been reviewed and accepted into Fedora as the python-apipkg package.

Comment 1 Thomas Moschny 2012-02-15 12:32:55 EST
This is going to be a wontfix, for several reasons:

- the python-apipkg rpm is not providing a python3 package, which would be needed
- there are major differences between apipkg.py (version "1.0" vs. "1.2.dev6")
- upstream doesn't seem to be very interested in making apipkg releases
- upstream announces apipkg as a copylib

So seems I need to ask FPC for an exception...

Mailed upstream, awaiting response.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 15:46:19 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

Comment 5 Thomas Moschny 2016-01-23 12:59:42 EST
Unbundling happening upstream is unlikely. I've now added

  Provides: bundled(python{,2,3}-apipkg) = ...

tags to the package in rawhide.
