Description of problem:
I remove package with yum and the pyo files stay in directory. It is problem, because the model is possible to import to code. I get error when I try use dnf-plugin-spacewalk.

Comment 1 Michael Mráka 2015-09-17 06:57:40 EDT
This should be fixed in yum packaging.
Solution would be including .pyo files as %ghost into package.
