Python packages awaiting review

Packaging Quickstart

If you're just getting started with packaging python modules for Fedora, here's some hints to get you started:

Package requests

  • Chandler PIM - I don't think it is such hot idea ... upstream is pinning for the fjords, and after couple of years of non-development, it is not that advanced as it used to be.
  • itools - A python library that includes several useful tools, such as an ODF anonymizer that can be used to sanitize confidential documents before attaching them tp bug reports
  • python-multiprocessing - multiprocessing backport useful for EL-5 review request
  • repoze.profile - WSGI profiling middleware
  • tgscheduler - TurboGears scheduler
