I've uploaded a new version to pypi: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/xpra/. But this doesn't install on platforms that require patching, like Debian (pygtk headers) or centos (various things). We should patch automatically on the fly as much as possible so that users can install from pypi. The patching can be made optional so that the rpmbuild and debuild process can remain the same (greater control).
After removing all the legacy bits (gstreamer 0.10, etc), and applying the gtk patch directly from setup.py in r14554, the only patch left is the centos7 selinux patch and we don't care about that one as it isn't built from pypi, it is only used from the rpm spec file.
@smo: just a FYI, feel free to close.
very cool good to know
