I think it's fine to ship it. But one thing looks odd to me: we use a
lot of prefixes for packages in our repo already (fuse-, perl-, or
python- are just some examples).

I don't like them to much, as it just creates confusion if we ship a
software under a different name than the one used upstream. But here
upstream doesn't even have a proper name that users would expect to "yum
install foo". So why not use a prefix like "book-" "doc-" or something
else for diveintopython and similar packages to make it obvious that
this is content (a book) and no code?

Just wondering.

I actually posted to the list about documentation awhile ago the thread
didn't grow legs.

I then obviously got it approved to go through.... I would think the
description or summary. A python book.


Cheers,
