[PATCH] Fix building issues with Fedora 23, related to namespace setup
When building on Fedora 23 without this patch, setup.py will fail like this:
+ cd /builddir/build/BUILD
+ cd backports.ssl_match_hostname-22.214.171.124
+ python setup.py build
error: Namespace package problem: backports is a namespace package, but its
__init__.py does not call declare_namespace()! Please fix it.
(See the setuptools manual under "Namespace Packages" for details.)
The attached patch adds the now enforced declare_namespace(__name__) call,
according to https://pythonhosted.org/setuptools/setuptools.html#namespace-packages
For what its worth.. I don't think you need backports.ssl_match_hostname on F23 and later. It is meant to patch something in the ssl stdlib module which is no longer needed with the version of core python available in that release. Does that help?
I wish we wouldn't need it. But when we are rebuilding the packages for a buildroot based on F23 packages, there is some package which pulls it it. I have not come far enough yet to figure out which package which pulls it in.
If we can get rid of it in the next round, I nothing would please me more. But currently it is needed to get further.
Update for F23 on it's way. Thanks for the patch, David!
