unbound-libs creates dependency on python2
Last modified: 2016-04-18 06:17:27 EDT
unbound-libs creates dependency on python2 even though there seems to be no need for such a requires.
[fedora@localhost ~]$ rpm -q unbound-libs --requires | grep python
No file from unbound-libs doesn't seem to use python in any way. Linking to libpython is from libunbound.so.
[fedora@localhost ~]$ ldd /usr/lib64/libunbound.so.2 | grep python
libpython2.7.so.1.0 => /lib64/libpython2.7.so.1.0 (0x00007fb8a7d18000)

My proposal is to package libunbound.so from python3 build of unbound.
I think the libunbound.so should not be linked with python if not really necessary. I'll have to investigate if there is some good reason for that.
There seems to be $LIBS variable in Makefile which includes '-lpythonX.Y' and is used everywhere. I'm investigating possible change.
In the meantime I reported this to upstream:
Preferring Python3 build over Python2 for now. Leaving the ticket open.
