(This is mostly a duplicate of a post I sent to devel@. I wanted to
alert epel-devel@ but didn't want to crosspost.)
Following my proposal in
met with favor from a number of folks here, I went ahead and set up four
python2-setuptools (in EPEL6)
I'll do EPEL6 versions of the latter tomorrow. (I forgot that I can
only request one branch with the initial repo request. Oops. In my
defense, that's a really odd restriction.)
These should, once actually pushed to stable, allow you to avoid having
to add conditionals to depend on setuptools/sphinx/pytest/six in EPEL.
If this works out for folks, I (or anyone else) can potentially add
similar dummy packages for every package which needs one. Anything to
cut down on those conditionals.
Please check my work, test and give karma as appropriate. They seem to
work fine for me when I set up a local repo and do some mock builds, but
I only have access to Centos so I guess anything is possible.
