But then everyone who wants to build a python package would need to fork
from d:l:py. This is not the case in practice.
Any project that wants the updated python-rpm-macros package will either
have to build against d:l:py (or factory) or carry over the
corresponding project config settings. That includes any :Update
What percentage of projects have a python package in them?
Since these are _new_ macros, what would be the danger of adding them
to the base distros: 13.1, 13.2, 42.1, 42.2 and factory.
I think as stated previously, know one has mentioned a way of doing this
without triggering a rebuild of these repo's which is undesirable and
