python-imaging does not provide egg information
Last modified: 2008-10-28 14:30:36 EDT
The current RPM for python-imaging does not provide any egg information. Upstream does not use setuptools but it is easily possible to enable the generation of egg information in the RPM. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Python/Eggs#Providing_Eggs_for_non-setuptools_packages
Missing egg information may force a user to recompile python-imaging if he needs to run software which uses setuptool's require mechanism and PIL is required.
For the moment I am busy with other issues and this subject has low priority.
If you have a patch that works I will review and take it. :-)
Sorry, I'm too stupid obviously. distutils in F9 provides egg info for (PIL.pth) for all python packages already. So PIL in F9 has this information already. I checked it before but obviously my setup was horribly broken back then...
Sorry for the noise. Bug should be closed as INVALID.
Per reporter's request.
