Description Carl George 2015-09-02 12:38:48 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest Fedora Python Packaging guidelines [1] state that python modules should have a virtual provides for python2-%{srcname}.  Obviously RHEL is not Fedora, but I think this enhancement makes sense for the RHEL package as well.  Similar virtual provides already exist on the base python packages.

    $ rpm -q --provides python | grep ^python2
    python2 = 2.7.5
    $ rpm -q --provides python-devel | grep ^python2
    python2-devel = 2.7.5-18.el7_1.1

EPEL package maintainers (like myself) can require the virtual python2 name in our spec files.  This allows the same spec file to be used for both Fedora and EPEL.

None that I am aware of.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
python-setuptools does not provide python2-setuptools

Expected results:
python-setuptools should provide python2-setuptools

This would help a lot with Fedora EPEL package consistency.
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2016-10-24 18:58:06 EDT
Really disappointed that this does not appear to have made it into 7.3.
