python3-tox recommends couple of packages:
$ rpm -q --recommends python3-tox
I want to include python3-tox in kickstart but I don't want to include all of the recommended packages to save space.
So I have this in %packages:
Nevertheless those are pulled in:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In 25 and rawhide mock.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. livemedia-creator --make-iso --no-virt --ks /root/flat-fedora-live-python-classroom.ks --release 26
pypy, python26, python33, python34 and python35 are installed in the image
pypy, python26, python33, python34 and python35 are not installed in the image
Note that I was not able to create iso in rawhide mock due to bz1412391 but the log already revealed this.
Also the iso created in F25 mock contains those and they can be safely removed via dnf when the iso is booted (so they are not pulled in as a dependency of another package).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
This is also an option in Koji.
It contains python26 and others even when explicitly minused.

The way to fix this is to make it so that packages not wanted are set as excluded from the DNF sack.
I've done this change in livecd-tools for this reason: https://github.com/livecd-tools/livecd-tools/commit/617e737474fb17da0e266422367e56ec54516bec
I ported this change to Anaconda (which is what actually does the real processing for lorax): https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/917
This is also the same solution that is used for other similar media creation tools (such as KIWI from SUSE, which the "ignore" tag for packages does the same thing).
This isn't something that lmc has any control over. It will need to be addressed by Anaconda.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
