Description James Antill 2010-05-10 15:45:13 UTC
Description of problem:

 If we are going to use xz from createrepo/yum we need python bindings. Worst case I can probably do them, but it'd be nice if an xz maintainer did them for me :).
 This blocks 590743, which is kind of important for 6.0

In any case I'm willing to help you writing it as I'm quite experienced with xz's API and can help you push things upstream or provide some examples.

I guess this should be closed ... as there are external bindings we are using atm. "pylzma", which is "import lzma".
