Description Charalampos Stratakis 2016-02-01 07:41:41 EST
The libcap-ng-python RPM requires both Python 2 and Python 3.

Except in very special circumstances, there is no need for one package
to drag in both Python stacks. This is a packaging error: the "/python?.?/" in the %files section will expand to both python2.? and python3.?.

The destination directory for python and python3 files should use %{python2_sitearch} and %{python3_sitearch} macros, respectively. See [0]

Please fix the spec file.

It's fine to do this in Rawhide only.

If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance, you can
ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy
to help investigating or fixing this issue!
