@dmitmel thanks! I'll definitely use that if I have another go at packaging picty! Explanation is the comments is super useful. Thanks again!

@codebling Take a look at my partial reimplementation of python2-exiv2 I wrote while packaging the latest version of mirage: You might be able to adapt this to your needs. Also, take a look at the comment at the top, I describe the alternative libraries there (and why they didn't work in my specific case).

Didn't notice that the package has been orphaned. Looks like it's end of life.

@dmitmel thanks for the quick response. Trying to package picty. Picty itself seems rather dated, so maybe this isn't even worth the effort.

@codebling I've tried patching this package to work on modern systems a while ago. It is most likely "beyond repair". Do you use it in your application or did you install it as a dependency for another one?

Confirmed, but upstream did no commit since 2012, so this was about to happen. Orphaning.
