Description of problem:
This package name is capitalized for no good Reason. All other python libraries
and bindings with the exception of PyQt begin with lowercase, and most XML
packages are also lowercase. If there is no specific reason for this package to
have a capital P, X, M and L, then making it lowercase will be easier (ie,
admins can reliably predict the package name) for users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Examine names of other python related packages
2.Examine the name of PyQt
It would be ideal if Red Hat could have a recommended policy for SPEC files,
covering such matters as capitalization,, what fields are mandatory, what is
sufficient for Summary / Description, etc. Or is there already such a document?
It's already been PyXML for a couple of releases.
