I think the issue of Python distutils/setuptools is important. I
note to the Python Distutils SIG asking if there was any way I could do an
RPN package (using bdist_rpm) with results going to my usual rpmbuild
directory tree instead of being placed in the same directory tree as the
sources and setup.py. I didn't get a response.
Actually I read your mail but honestly I found it confusing / it was not clear
to me what you're aiming at.
Meanwhile, everything seems to be eggs and easy_install that conflict
the overall system management aspects (and Linux Standards Base aspects)
Can you elaborate this a bit more? What is 'everything'? Is it linked to
Fedora or the fact that most projects publish eggs on their own?
I think that any changes to fix the Python distutils/setuptools for
will probably need to originate in the Fedora community.
How do you think that should be fixed? What needs fixing? To me, the packaging
situation in Python/Fedora is pretty good and I don't see much things that
need fixing from Fedora point of view (besides setuptools/distribute).
