Spec URL:

Description: IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of
the IMDb movie database.

IMDbPY is mainly a tool intended for programmers and developers, but
some example scripts are included.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-02-02 14:56:42 UTC
Unfortunately due to an "issue" with rpmbuild, you will find that your package
included .pyc and .pyo files in /usr/bin which really should not be there.  Your
options are to %exclude them in %files with something like
  %exclude %{_bindir}/*.py[co]
or to rename the executables you place in /usr/bin to names that don't end in
.py.  The latter may be more reasonable since you don't generally expect
installed executables to end in an extension like .py.

Comment 2 Allisson Azevedo 2008-02-09 17:52:42 UTC
Update package:

Spec URL:


- Package name is python-imdbpy now
- Remove *.py* files in /usr/bin and move for examples directory in docs

Comment 3 Timothy Selivanow 2008-03-25 21:25:43 UTC
I'd say that it would be safe(er) to call it python-imdb (instead of
python-imdbpy), as per
since it is used as `import imdb`.

No output from rpmlint, Koji builds fine:

I'll compile and install it on my F8 box and test out some python code.  Do you
know if they have a test suite that you could run in %check?

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-07-29 06:06:47 UTC
 any updates on comment #3? 

Comment 5 Soumya Kanti Chakraborty 2008-08-06 19:25:53 UTC
If there in no interest from the submitter now , I can take over the package as I need it to package ENTERTAINER.

Comment 6 Debarshi Ray 2008-10-15 20:14:10 UTC
I think this review is dead.

Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-10-16 05:37:52 UTC
OK marking this as a DEADREVIEW.
