Yes, I'll be making seperate requests once I'm satisfied they're sane and fit
for Extras consumption.

For GeoIP-Python, I'm running a local build of a quick spec built off the python
template. It's not a huge package so should not take long to build (and
hopefully review)

I get the impression Warren was referring to it being of lesser interest to
Fedora in the sense of the core package engineers / tools developers et. al - it
would see less usage as a significant amount of "innards and internals" code
(yum, anaconda etc.) is in Python rather than Perl. I'm sure it's useful to at
least some Fedora / Extras users :-P

My primary reason for mentioning it (GeoIP perl bindings) was as a nice
complement to Extras' AWStats package - the geoip plugin uses it for more
accurate country lookups, which I've got working quite nicely over here with
minimal effort.
