python: mixing sitearch and sitelib (was: python noarch vs arch)



Moving the discussion to fedora-packaging as if even memebers of the
packaging committee are confused and gove wrong advice, then this is
something that should be discussed and placed into the packaging
guidelines.

You mean just the way python-elementtree (and thus yum) works exactly
that way since FC3?

Yes, that statement is wrong, just log onto a multilib system and
check ownership of parts of sitelib. For example on FC5/x86_64:

# rpm -qf --qf '%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}.rpm\n' /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/* | uniq | grep x86_64
aqbanking-1.8.1beta-3.1.x86_64.rpm
audit-libs-python-1.1.5-1.x86_64.rpm
avahi-tools-0.6.10-1.FC5.x86_64.rpm
python-elementtree-1.2.6-4.2.1.x86_64.rpm
wireshark-0.99.2-fc5.2.x86_64.rpm
