Hi! Recently encountered a problem with the python-demjson rpm I maintain: The demjson package does not use setuptools, so, in accordance with the python packaging guidelines, I used the trick of preloading setuptools prior to executing setup.py, for F7 and F8 only. This produces an egg-info directory, fine. Now, for F9, egg-info is generated automatically, but it turns out that this produces an egg-info file instead of an directory. This in turn causes problems when upgrading from F8 to F9, because rpm can't replace a dir with a file. Any advices on how to solve this?
Do you have a reason to need eggs on F7 and F8?If not, then the answer is simply to not provide eggs on F7 and F8. Note: If you've already pushed out packages for F7 and F8 you'll need to wait until the next upstream release to make this change.
