Don’t forget, there’s a bug tracker you can submit requests to. <wink>

I really want clean builds of upstream tarball releases.  Debian/Ubuntu for sure, and I would bet Fedora too, has downstream deltas applied, so if something fails there, how do you know it’s because of your package or something the distro added?  Note that we do install the build dependencies for the Pythons so they’ll link against platform libraries and such.

You can totally file an issue so we can discuss it. :)
