python-xlrd has a newer version 0.9.2, could it be pushed to devel and F19, maybe even F18?
Similarly, the 0.8.0 update brought the xslx support, would it be possible to have it on EL6?
Hello. python-xlrd-0.9.2 built for fc20. I can build it for f19 too.
I am not sure, how compatible is version 0.9 with 0.8 or older, so don't know if I can build it for stable releases.
I think it's worth building for F19 as well.
As far as I can see, the tutorial https://github.com/python-excel/tutorial did not change for a year while xlrd went from 0.7.* to 0.9.*
This would make me think that it's pretty safe to update on stable release but might be worth asking upstream for confirmation.
Update to 0.9.2 has been confirmed by upstream:
> There aren't any, because there are no changes. Applications written for
> 0.6.x will still work without change when using 0.9.2.
