Description: IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of
the IMDb movie database.
IMDbPY is mainly a tool intended for programmers and developers, but
some example scripts are included.
Unfortunately due to an "issue" with rpmbuild, you will find that your package
included .pyc and .pyo files in /usr/bin which really should not be there. Your
options are to %exclude them in %files with something like
or to rename the executables you place in /usr/bin to names that don't end in
.py. The latter may be more reasonable since you don't generally expect
installed executables to end in an extension like .py.

- Package name is python-imdbpy now
- Remove *.py* files in /usr/bin and move for examples directory in docs
I'd say that it would be safe(er) to call it python-imdb (instead of
python-imdbpy), as per http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines
since it is used as `import imdb`.
No output from rpmlint, Koji builds fine:
I'll compile and install it on my F8 box and test out some python code. Do you
know if they have a test suite that you could run in %check?
any updates on comment #3?
If there in no interest from the submitter now , I can take over the package as I need it to package ENTERTAINER.
I think this review is dead.
OK marking this as a DEADREVIEW.
