Description of problem:
The actual sqlalchemy code is put in site-packages/SQLAlchemy-0.8.2-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/sqlalchemy, when it should be in site-packages/sqlalchemy for it to be picked up by Python's site.py at interpreter startup. The jinja2 rpm has the same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install python-sqlalchemy on RHEL6
2. Start a python interpreter
3. Type "import sqlalchemy" and watch it fail
Import does not work
The workaround for this is obviously
but that really shouldn't be necessary.
This is intentional in parallel installable packages, otherwise they would conflict with base RHEL provided libraries.
README.Fedora in the package explains how to use it.
