Default Handling lamson

Hi,

I am planning to package funnel, a software for online submissions and
voting of talks as part of the FUDCon India effort. One if its
dependencies is flask-mail[0] and in turn, lamson[1] is a dependency
for it which was already in Fedora briefly but now it's orphaned due
to some resistance from upstream. Without packaging lamson, we cannot
package many modules that are dependent on it. Debian[2], Ubuntu and
others distros have however packaged it already. What is the best way
forward? Should I go ahead and package it and if so, should it be
called lamson or python-lamson?

[0] http://packages.python.org/Flask-Mail/
[1] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=502556
[2] http://packages.debian.org/unstable/python-lamson



Thanks and Regards.

So... actually the request for people who have bugs to filter them through
the distribution doesn't seem unreasonable/out of the ordinary in any sense.
The first part where he prefers that it not be packaged at all is out of the
odinary but from the conciliatory tone of the rest, perhaps its literally
just him talking about his idea of an ideal world.

You may package this. You may want to let upstream know that you have and
that he can feel free to direct people using the Fedora packages to our
bugzilla/IRC channels.

Naming wise... applications do not have to use python-* but a lot of python
applications (lamson seems to be in this boat) contain python modules and
those really should be named python-*. Especially nowadays when we build
python3 versions of a lot of modules. From the sound of the review request
("I consider Lamson analogous to frameworks[...]") this should probably be
named python-lamson.
