Patch to use the form of import of PIL that is pillow compatible
Description of problem:
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 textile source and found some occurrences of "import Image". I'll attach a patch that updates these to the new form of import.
Also, python-textile should probably have:
in its spec file
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 and the decision whether to add python-imaging to the spec file up to you, though.
Filed a bug upstream: https://github.com/sebix/python-textile/pull/10
To me python-imaging seems to be an optional runtime dependency, so I think we should not add the Requires: tag.
Updated package in Rawhide.
