I'm not a Python guru or anything, but I agree that since they do not execute on
their own (merely imported from another module or script), then they do not need
to be executable. Though, you should keep them world-readable! ;)

The file in question most likely has a shebang header ("#!/usr/bin/python -tt",
for example). Thus, rpmlint thinks it is a script due to that and hence the
complaint about it not being executable.

From my perspective, that is probably safe to ignore...
