Chardet is a Python library for the auto-dection of character encoding.
It is a port of the auto-detection code in Mozilla.

Hi Andreas - I'm a new packager here but some changes I thought might be required:

1. You're packaging a library, not a language:

Group: Development/Libraries

2. As per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Python

BuildRequires: python

Package built fine on F10 for me.

Comment 2 Andreas Osowski 2009-04-01 07:39:41 EDT
Hello Jason,
I adapted python-chardet from python-feedparser (which is already in the repository).

As python-chardet is a *python* library, it is no system / c / whatever library

Group: Development/Languages

is the correct one.

Well, python-feedparser has

BuildRequires: python-devel 

and as I said, I adapted from that srpm.
python-chardet requires the /usr/lib/python2.5/config/ dir and thus needs
BuildRequires: python-devel

This obsoletes 
BuildRequires: python

Sorry , but python-chardet is already reviewed, the build got delayed.
