Namespace conflict for python-magic
Hi Christoph, hi folks,
there exists an odd namespace conflict for python-magic.
Current python(3)-magic in Debian is built from source package 'file'.
According to the included setup.py the package for the python bindings are
published as 'file-magic' and are available on PyPi under this name.
OTOH the package providing python-magic on PyPi is provided by another
The cleanest solution for me would look like
- package file in Debian should provide python(3)-file-magic
- python-magic should be the package name corresponding to the PyPi package
The realization of this solution would create some substantial overhead.
Therefore it will be more adequate to find a different, but nevertheless
meaningful package name for python-magic from . The ugly, but best name
currently on my mind would be python-python-magic.
