python-six in EPEL 6?
Last modified: 2012-09-27 13:51:45 EDT
Packages that depend on python-six are meant to be run on top of both python2 and python3. Since python-six is not in epel6, the python2 portions of six-enabled packages also cannot make it into epel.
I think the way six is packaged can be improved, allowing support for a python2-only packaging of six for epel, thus opening the door to other six-dependant packages.
* A patch to think about - http://threebean.org/tmp/tmp.oVUevgMZv3.html
* Raw version of that patch - http://threebean.org/patches/0001-Conditionalized-python3-six-allowing-an-el6-build.patch
* Successful scratch build on el6-candidate - http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4189666
Thanks; I've committed and pushed this to master (tweaking the rhel conditional slightly).
I'll make a request to get an el6 branch added
