[Fedora-packaging] Update to the Addon Packages naming guidelines for Python 3 Modules

Two issues with the Addon Packages naming guidlines for Python 3:

On May 27th, 2013, the following exception has been removed from the
naming guidelines for Python Module packages:

 | There is an exception to this rule. If the upstream source has "py" (or
 | "Py") in its name, you can use that name for the package. So, for
 | example, pygtk is acceptable.

The Python3 Module package naming guidelines still refer to that exception:


That part should be removed as not to cause confusion.


As a second matter, the examples at the bottom of that section mention
"pygtk2", which does not adhere to the current naming guidelines anymore.
What's the status there? Is this just a compromise because such older
packages won't be renamed? Or would it be better to replace that example
with one of the many python-py* packages? ( yum list python-py\* )
