Just some hints for packaging Python (iow, makes my life easier at
number of thoughts by critically interested parties about this issue.
This request has been open for almost eighteen months now :(
Some of the respondents seem to think that only one or two macros are

please the widest possible audience.
A case in point is that we presently cannot migrate to Python2.4 until
Zope Corporation sign off a security audit on their app server. If
people didn't hard-code 2.4 into the build scripts, and if they use the
include macros for C-based python code, then we could almost certainly
backport any FC4 python SRPM's to our FC3 target without *any*
This is simply not the case. We've already had to manage upgrades for
2.1, 2.2, and 2.3. A lot of things associated with Fedora development
are still retentive and frustrating.
