Re: Move libgnome[ui] Python bindings to gnome-python2-gnome



I'm moving forward with this today and will be filing Rawhide bugs
against the packages listed below.  If you own any of those packages and
the package does not actually use the Python bindings for libgnome or
libgnomeui, just close the bug as NOTABUG with a comment stating so.

I'm hoping we can resolve these quickly and keep Rawhide breakage to a
minimum.

Thanks,
Matthew Barnes
