Here's a few things I found out while making the rpms for
and a few questions that have now resulted.
I've attached an irc log of a chat I had in #turbogears. They say that
packaging a python module as a .egg file isn't necessary. This means
that the python-Testgears spec can be, and probably should be, modified
to use the --single-version-externally-managed flag.
TurboGears will work just fine without python-TestGears. It's just a
testing suite. Should the dependency be taken out of the TurboGears
package? Also, the people in #turbogears (specifically evelind) say
that they don't even use python-TestGears and instead have moved on to
). Should I package nose or
python-TestGears or both?
Ignacio packaged up TurboGears for extras earlier this year, which
installs it using --single-version-externally-managed.
As for python-TestGears, I recently filed a bug to add this as a
dependency because the tg-admin tool explodes without it:
