I will need to build some Python packages for Fedora and Centos. The spec
file produced by bdist_rpm automatically includes the statement
%files -f INSTALLED_FILES
The Fedora Python packaging instruction includes a recommendation to avoid
use of INSTALLED_FILES and provides some alternatives. That is the first
incompatibility I've encountered, but there may be more.
The bdist_rpm code probably should be changed to enable compatibility.
Meanwhile, is there a workaround?
