I find this a good start (just as you do). :-)
Just to add to the discussion my main interest in this SIG is on scientific
and/or educational python packages.
What we see, in terms of packaging, in projects like sage
or in other projects (proprietary) like EPD
(Enthought Python distribution) or Python(x,y) is that put everything under
the sun on those packages.
It would be nice to have the free parts in Fedora...
Such as the above statement is written I see these goals there.
WRT enthought, they're very interested in getting their software packaged
for individual distributions but don't have any manpower or inhouse
knowledge on how to do that. If someone were to start working on those
packages, I could pass along contact information and we could potentially
have help from them on changing their packaging over time to address our
