The backports namespace is a namespace reserved for features backported from
the Python standard library to older versions of Python 2.

Packages that exist in the backports namespace in Fedora should not provide
their own backports/__init__.py, but instead require this package.

Backports to earlier versions of Python 3, if they exist, do not need this
package because of changes made in Python 3.3 in PEP 420


Note that this RPM conflicts with python-backports-ssl_match_hostname. At the same time this package is put in Fedora/EPEL, updates to python-backports-ssl_match_hostname will be made to resolve the conflict.

Blocking FE-Legal to make sure the license tag for this package is set correctly.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-08-19 14:44:41 UTC
Public Domain is fine here, lifting FE-Legal.

Comment 4 Nick Bebout 2013-08-19 21:34:35 UTC
I think this is the simplest package review I have ever done :)

This package is APPROVED.
