OK. I think I've read the whole old thread now :-)
First of all: I *will* package compat-python and Zope/Plone, because I
need it at work. The only question is if Fedora/FESCo wants me to share
my work with the Fedora community or not!
I can think of a Python 2.4 package that lives within the Zope tree to
make it extra hard for others to use it by accident - but I don't think
that this would be neat, seen from a FHS point of view.
I'm not a big fan of third party repositories. DOT. This would lead to
an extra discussion...
a) I maintain Zope/Plone (+ deps, eg. compat-python) in Fedora
b) I maintain it on my *private* company repo
c) NOTE!: I guess this will lead to packages a la
and maybe a whole bunch of others...
So. FESCo? Do you want me to share my work with the community or not. DOT.
PS: I'm thinking of rpmfusion, but then I would have to maintain
packages in 3 places: company, fedora, rpmfusion... If I would maintain
it only company internal, I would get bugreports only by our web
developers - would reduce my work - not too bad, isn't it :-P
