Description Peter Bowen 2002-04-06 08:46:07 EST
When built as python2, python should provide 
python = %{?epoch:%{epoch}}%{version}-%{release}
so that people can simply require python >= 2.0 and it will work.
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-08 11:14:33 EDT
I think that's a bad idea, as you'd then expect /usr/bin/python and the
supporting infrastructure (modules etc). to be there.
