Have you built it with -m --build-as-nobody?
Replaces xattr-py25 currently in the tree
Does not pass -m for me:
Error: File in a language-versioned package is neither versioned nor in a versioned directory.
Offending file: /sw/bin/xattr
I see the same thing in the existing (older version) package currently in fink.
Also, distribute-pyXX is the modern replacement for the older setuptools-pyXX package; no harm for now in using old, but may as well migrate to the new unless there's an incompatibility with it.
I see this same -m fail on xattr-py27 and other variants, on both 10.6/i386 and 10.7/x86_64
I modified and updated the package to pass through Fink validation.
I no longer see the error dmacks pointed out for non-versioned files. However, the package is missing a PreRmScript to resolve the symlinks that update-alternatives creates during a package removeal. If I install -py25 followed by -py26, and then remove -py26, the symlink chain xattr -> /sw32/etc/alternatives/xattr -> /sw32/bin/xattr-py26 gets broken because xattr-py26 is removed, but the broken symlinks are left behind and not modified to point back to -py25.
I believe if you use the PreRmScript from the current in Fink copy of xattr-py-0.4, that will be enough to solve this issue.
