Transaction check error:

  file /usr/lib/python3.3/site-packages/WebOb-1.2.3-py3.3.egg from install of python3-webob1.2-1.2.3-6.fc20.noarch conflicts with file from package python3-webob1.2-1.2.3-3.fc19.noarch

Comment 1 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2014-01-06 21:22:07 UTC
Analyzed and found that the root cause is that the updated python-setuptools in F20+ installs zipped eggs instead of unzipped eggs.  This causes problems for rpm which cannot replace a directory with a file.  The workaround is to use easy_install -Z when installing the egg.  I'll get the packaging guidelines updated to use that.

However, in looking at this I also noticed that python-webob1.2 is retired in f20.  Looks like the Obsoletes in the python-webob package is referencing too early a version of python-webob1.2  We should be able to fix that with an update to python-webob.  (to have Obsoletes: python-webob <  1.2.3-7 )
