python distutils vs. me
i've spend my week to find someone to build and maintain a RPM for pyxdg (Python bindings for FreeDesktop)

i recieved a mail from mandrake cooker maintainer explaining that they don't want the rpm to use the distutils in post intallation ... ok ...

python setup.py --help-commands | grep RPM
bdist_rpm create an RPM distribution

Oh My God !

python setup.py bdist_rpm
# ...
ls dist/
pyxdg-0.5-1.noarch.rpm pyxdg-0.5-1.src.rpm pyxdg-0.5.tar.gz

so pyxdg will get soon into mandrake cooker :D
