   types. [Joao, David]
   o Joao has written scripts, just need to finish up, evaluate, integrate.
+o Determine whether zenmap.spec.in can currently require
+  "python-sqlite" rather than "python-sqlite2", or if it at least can
+  be easily made to do so. The former seems more compatible since
+  RHEL/CentOS 5.3 has a "python-sqlite" package, but not
+  "python-sqlite2".  Meanwhile, Fedora 10 provides the "python-sqlite"
+  capability as long as you have the Python 2.5 package installed
+  (python-2.5.2-1.fc10).  Fedora 10 does also make a
+  python-sqlite2 package available.
 o Update CHANGELOG for latest changes [Fyodor]

The naming of these packages is messed up. I listed a couple of the
variations at http://seclists.org/nmap-dev/2007/q4/0321.html. Part of
the problem is that the pysqlite library has a major version of 2, but
it's built on SQLite 3.

The module required is included by default in Python 2.5, at least when
you get it from python.org. Some distributions split it up. In MacPorts
you have to install the py25-sqlite3 port (yet another name).
