[Mageia-dev] task-lamp and apache-mod_python

one of the missing packages in youri is task-lamp-python, because
apache-mod_python is not imported. As it is in low maintenance mode
upstream ( and I am not sure it is still working well ), the question is
"what should we do ?"

- import it
- drop task-lamp-python 
- replace it with mod_wsgi ( despites not being a replacement for
mod_python and being quite different )

I would be in favor of dropping task-lamp-python ( and perl too ),
because the vast majority of people doing perl/python on the web use
high level framework, such as catalyst and django, and using apache +
mod_python + mysql never was a popular option. 

The same goes for perl, people cannot use task-lamp-perl and have
something working without further configuration, so the interest is
quite limited.
