The death of rhpl



We're hoping to be able to not ship rhpl for Fedora 12 -- this isn't
something which is really a "feature", but it might be something that a
heads up is useful for.  Anyone who has a package with a dependency on
rhpl should have a bug filed, 98% of them with patches, to switch to
using something else.

If you are using rhpl and *don't* have a Requires: rhpl in your spec
file (or are using it for something not in Fedora), here's the
replacements for the things which were commonly used

* rhpl.translate -> Use python's gettext module.  It's a lot more
  functional these days.  rhpl.translate was a good idea 7 years ago,
  but not anymore :)
* rhpl.ethtool -> python-ethtool provides a module with similar/the same
  API
* rhpl.exception -> Chris Lumens has split out a new package python-meh
  which includes the exception handling capabilities from rhpl with the
  added support for filing to bugzilla like anaconda does 
* rhpl.keyboard* -> these now live in system-config-keyboard
