Description Brian J. Murrell 2011-11-14 15:51:32 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #753905 +++

Description of problem:

The avahi-ui-tools contains both binary and library.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. N/A
Actual results:

I should be able to get the python avahi bindings in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/avahi without having to pull gtk and it's dependencies in.  i.e. this is bad/wrong (example from RHEL6 but I'd guess F15 is the same):

 avahi-ui-tools                  x86_64              0.6.25-8.el6                                   /avahi-ui-tools-0.6.25-8.el6.x86_64               73 k

when all I want is the contents of /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/avahi.

Expected results:

Similar to Debian/Ubuntu's python-avahi package:  
$ dpkg -L python-avahi

which avahi-ui-tools should then depend on.

patch to create an avahi-python package

Here's a patch to effect the change I am requesting.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 12:59:03 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
