Description Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-12-02 20:02:36 EST
For strict FHS compliance, noarch python modules should install below /usr/share instead of below /usr/lib.  We could install to %{_datadir}/python2.6/site-packages for instance.

In the past this was rejected because of concerns that third party python modules that do not use distutils to install could have hardcoded /usr/lib and therefore would break with this change.  Unknown if this is still a concern.

This change could be applied solely to python3 if it seems less risky.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

One day we'll get to this... But it's not realistic for python2. Reassigning to python3.

It'd be nice to do for Python 3 indeed...
