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:
from PIL import Image
Pillow only supports the latter form.
I grepped through the impressive source and found some occurrences of "import Image". I'll attach a patch that updates these to the new form of import.
Update is pushed and in koji:
I can confirm that this works with the old PIL. Please confirm that it goes smoothly with PILLOW also ;)
@Sandro Mani -> are you able to confirm that the new build works with your proposed python-pillow packages?
$ impressive /some/file.pdf
seems to work just fine.
Assuming that pillow doesn't go to F18, I'm closing this RAWHIDE.
