can you think of any reason why this wouldn't count for fedora versions too?

As far as i know ctypes are part of python-libs from python 2.5. So there is no need for separate python-ctypes.

Comment 4 Greg Swift 2013-10-23 11:56:52 EDT
thanks Arun.

Just went back and reviewed the packaging guidelines for python packages, and I want to make another set of changes to the spec.  shouldn't change functionality.  might take me a few more days to find the time though, but technically its not necessary so this can go forward.  up to you.
