Description Felix Schwarz 2008-10-23 11:57:06 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. :-)
Comment 2 Felix Schwarz 2008-10-28 09:57:05 EDT
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.
