Patch to use the form of import of PIL that is pillow compatible

Fedora 19 is going to stop shipping python-imaging (PIL) and start shipping python-pillow instead.  Rationale can be found on the feature page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Pillow .  pillow should be compatible with PIL at the code level but the import statement changes slightly.

PIL supports both of these:

import Image

from PIL import Image

Pillow only supports the latter form.

I grepped through the gwibber source and found some occurrences of "import Image".  I'll attach a patch that updates these to the new form of import.

If I don't hear anything back from you, I'll go ahead and use provenpackager powers to apply this patch to the RawHide package next week.  I'll leave sending the patch to upstream up to you, though.

Comment 2 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2013-02-05 01:50:42 UTC
New gwibber with the patch has been built for Rawhide.  I'll leave this open since I didn't send the patch upstream.
