I'm trying to make a package for pysvn [http://pysvn.tigris.org
have a few questions. Right now it's not compiling, rpmbuild is
complaining about "error: line 27: Package does not exist: %description

worked a long time ago (F6/F7, not sure which).
I've never seen a package that tries to set the description of its
debuginfo subpackage. I don't know what's changed to make it not work,
but it isn't necessary. Feel free to remove.
Also, I discovered that the installer makes a differently named .so
depending on the version of python that it is compiling against, and I'd
like to know the best way to do an if style statement that will solve
that (I'd like to be able to use the same spec on CentOS too).
Hrm. That's fairly obnoxious. I would say just patch out the parts of
the code that do this (result in a different filename). There's
certainly no need for it after install.
