1. Should the license really be "Python Software Foundation License"
and not "Python license" ? a grep in the unpacked source gives:
PKG-INFO:License: Python license
README.txt:This code is released under a Python-style license.
setup.py:        license = 'Python license',

2. You should provide a full path to the source in Source0.
Perhaps something like:
Source0: http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/pydns/

3. You need to own the %{python_sitelib}/DNS/ directory, not just
it's contents.

4. rpmlint says:
W: python-pydns summary-ended-with-dot Python module for DNS (Domain Name 
Suggest: remove the . at the end of the summary line.

5. You BuildRequire python-setuptools, according to the python package
guidelines ( at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Python ),
"Python packages that use setuptools need to add python-setuptools 
as a BuildRequires and must either add --single-version-externally-managed 
to the line invoking setup.py in %install, or must add a .pth file 
containing the path to the egg or egg directory to %{python_sitelib}."
Should this package do that? Or does it really need python-setuptools at all?
