I pulled the SRPM and gave it a look over. Pretty good overall! I'm
not sure how much you've packaged before but I couldn't find much
wrong with it. Here's what I did find:

1. Why is the license GPLv2+ "with exceptions"?
2. I got rid of %clean and "rm -rf %{buildroot}" in %install. You
don't need those anymore.
3. I got rid of a lot of the white space in the description and fixed
one spelling error (rpmlint is your friend).
4. %exclude in %files for the Profiling.py file is not the way to go.
That works well for excluding files you want in a separate
sub-package. In this case because the file (nor the byte-compiled
versions) are needed at all, I used "rm -f
%{buildroot}%{python_sitelib}/Jokosher/Profiler.py*" in %install
5. I changed the release to "1" since it's from the stable source
instead of a pre-release checkout.
6. Added "python2-devel" as a build requirement[1].

Here's the updated SRPM:

So the question remains, instead of seeing if someone else will submit
it, why not submit it yourself?
