Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219256
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
python 2.5 contains python-ctypes previously in Extras, please add a provide for
the package (I've nuked from extras).
Shouldn't the same thing be done with python-elementtree? At the moment, only
the Obsoletes is there.

I've intentionally not done so as you have to make changes to your source to use
elementtree. If it was going to be provided, it'd probably make sense to also
provide a compatibility shim. And I really didn't want to go there unless there
was lots of demand for it.
Ok, if the included elementtree is not drop-in compatible with the old one,
sounds good as is to me.
