[New-bugs-announce] [issue24633] Not a directory: '//anaconda/lib/python2.7/site-packages/readme/__about__.py'

New submission from Sébastien Celles:


the package name "readme" conflicts with Python installed site-packages/README file on case-insensitive filesystems (Mac OS X).


I wonder if README file should be be renamed README.rst or README.txt or README.md to avoid this issue or if readme package should be renamed.

Kind regards
