An option could be to put this into prjconf of Factory and other
distros?

Why other ditros? This is surely a factory thing.

packages using the new macros are strictly incompatible with older
distros.

What's your point then?

well, the primary reason for this incompatibility is the %python_module
macro, which i would need to add to said older distros.

Why would that be needed? Only factory-based repositories will be using
it, IIUC.

devel:languages:python itself builds for distros as old as SLE11. we
might drop that soon, but still there's SLE12_backports, 13.2 and both
Leaps, both of which are "old distros" for the purpose of this
discussion, seeing as they're already released.

So do many personal / topical / private repositories.

We need to support all of that, otherwise nobody will switch to the new
macros.


Andreas.
