Python2 stub packages now in EPEL stable

[For those who don't read epel-devel, this is a duplicate of a message
also posted there.]

The initial set of stub python2-* packages I created have now made their
way to EPEL6 and EPEL7 stable, so packages can now depend on
python2-setuptools, python2-six, python2-pytest and python2-sphinx
in all releases without having to add conditionals for EPEL.

Feel free to suggest additional packages; I will be happy to create
them.

See <a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Tibbs/EPELPythonStubPackages" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Tibbs/EPELPythonStubPackages">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Tibbs/EPELPythonStubPackages</a> for
more information.

Awesome progress thank you very much!

I hope that someday EL will stop trying to perpetuate old quirks by default, and starts being more forward-looking. I've lost count of the amount of efforts poured in SCLs or modules just to avoid touching the EL basesystem.

Regards,
