Description Jan Niklas Hasse 2017-07-26 08:11:23 EDT
Description of problem:
The python3-pylint package provides the binary /usr/bin/pylint-3. While this is fine when using both the Python 2 and the Python 3 version, it would be great if python3-pylint also provided the normal pylint binary, so that the usage of Python 3 is encouraged.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run `dnf provides /usr/bin/pylint`

Actual results:
Returns only pylint

Expected results:
Should return both pylint and python3-pylint

Additional info:
This can be done using "alternatives". See this similar bug report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1404699
