python packaging



   Hi,

for internal reasons, I'm trying to package sympy (a python symbolic algebra library) with rpm. I find a small ambiguity between the packaging guidelines and the rpm tools (nothing blocking).

Since the library does not contain C source code, I followed the noarch packaging guidelines, but rpmbuild insists on creating an x86-64 rpm. After verifying, I find that this is very common practise and that many packages that are installed in /usr/lib/python-*/ are x86-64 packages
even though they do not contain arch specific files.

Is there something I did not understood.

This is under FC7 x86-64.

   Thank you,

      Theo.

PS: If there is interest, I certainly can submit this rpm (and some others) to fedora.
