Description Enrico Scholz 2000-10-18 18:13:04 EDT
Please include scripts under Tools/scripts/, because there is a lot of
stuff needed or being usefully for the work with python. E.g. the Python
Library Reference says at  `8.12 fcntl...':

| You can create the modules yourself with the h2py script,
| found in the Tools/scripts/ directory

Wow this is an old one.
Arbitrarily chose to deploy the scripts under

Does that make sense? I can change it if not...
Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2004-07-29 19:42:10 EDT
python 2.3.4-5 will have this fixed.
Comment 3 Jeff Pitman 2004-08-12 11:55:28 EDT
I've browsed both Debian lists and Python-dev.  I 
think /usr/lib/python2.3/Tools was the eventual consensus.  But, I 
don't know.  I'd rather see if another precedent has been set before 
making a plunge into /usr/share.  I'll troll around some other 
distros to see...

Jeff, thanks for your help. Please move the bug back to ASSIGNED if my
choice was not appropriate.

Here's the lowdown: 
Official Python RPM SPEC (Sean's) puts the files 
in /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/Tools. 
Turbo Linux puts the files in /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/Tools. 
Engarde linux also put them in /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/Tools. 
Everyone else either does it how Redhat used to or they don't even 
package anything from Tools altogether.  Suse just packages idle in 
python-idle and dumps the rest. 
My thoughts: 
/usr/lib/pythonX.Y/Tools seems to be the precedent python.org is 
trying to set. Even though most of these will *not* be "import"ed 
into other Python programs, it may do just as well to make them 
available here for those that are reading through the documentation. 
Pynche, modulator, idle are made to install in site-packages and 
reworked from there. So, what's left is a bunch of random sample 
programs that people can reference. 
It might even do well to bring this up on Python-dev again before 
preceding.  But, following blindly, it probably should go 
into /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/Tools.

Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.

However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
