line).

Hi All,

One of the talks I saw at linux.conf.au 2014 was Python Packaging 2.0:
Playing Well With Others:

Nick (the speaker) wanted me to make sure that we in openSUSE were aware
of Python package metadata efforts,

We are more or less, as much as it matters to us. Python packages are auto-
generated from metadata (in it's current form, published to PyPI) for quite a
while now, so it's good enough in most cases. However, there are a lot of
areas where the specification is lacking which forces us to guess or bail out.

and is seeking feedback from distro
people to make sure Python is doing things we can work with on a
packaging front.

Good point, I'll get in touch with him. I already have some points to address,
but I guess this is better discussed at distutils-sig@xxxxxxxxxx, not here.

I'm not especially deep into Python myself, so I'm
putting this out here on opensuse-packaging and opensuse-factory in case
someone more suitable is around ;)

Relevant PEPs are:

Metadata for Python Software Packages 2.0
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0426/

Version Identification and Dependency Specification
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0440/

Standard Metadata Extensions for Python Software Packages
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0459/

Tim
