The Python X Library is a complete X11R6 client-side implementation, 
written in pure Python. It can be used to write low-levelish X Windows 
client applications in Python.

This package is a new requirement for the newly released istanbul 0.2.2

rpmlint returns clean
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2007-03-25 08:45:36 EDT
I can review this coming week (if no one else gets to it before then).

On first glance, packaging looks good/clean, my only suggestion would be to
shorten summary a wee bit to something like:
Summary: X client library for Python
Comment 2 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-25 18:07:59 EDT
I'll shorten the summary, in the next srpm/spec set. Though I'm going to hold
off on bumping a release of the spec until I know if there's something else I
need to change. I hate bumping submission revs for individual non-critical build
or run time booboos.

Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2007-04-06 18:11:04 EDT
Updated for the summary text change suggestion

So uhm, Rex, anytime you want to start that official review that would be great.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-04-09 16:21:48 EDT
plate... full... but... eating as ... fast as I can... 

alright, I'm ready for a review now.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-04-09 16:33:53 EDT
sorry for the delay, this one's simple enough, and looks good.

Wow, I don't recall ever actually witnesseing a 100% clean (w/o warnings)
rpmlint on a package under review before either.  neat.

My only possible suggestion would be to split the ~660K-ish docs into a separate
package (-doc), to ease the runtime weight of python-xlibs.

Comment 6 Jef Spaleta 2007-04-11 00:42:38 EDT
Okay I spun a new version with a separate doc subpackage
if you have a second please take a quick look at the binaries in

Looks good, except you prolly don't want/need
in *both* packages (just the main one).
Comment 9 Orion Poplawski 2013-10-14 16:10:18 EDT
I would like to see this in EPEL6.  Would you be willing to support it there, or should I?
