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.
