Description

The install instructions tell on:
http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/v0.6.1/siteadmin/deploying.html

Tell me to install the prerequisite python-imaging on Fedora. But in the version I'm using (Fedora 20), this package has been replaced by

python-pillow

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Pillow
Replace PIL (python-imaging) with Pillow, an actively maintained fork which is also heading for python3 compatibility

When trying to install with:

./experimental-bootstrap.sh && ./configure && make

I get:

checking for Python 'Image' library... no
configure: error: Python Imaging Library is required

Using virtualenv it works ok

Noting the existance of earlier ticket #651 "Switch to Pillow?". That may be a bigger task though. This particular ticket could be solved with updated documentation for Fedora.
