Description Carl George 2018-11-29 21:18:11 UTC
Description of problem:
The python36 spec file contains the following:

    Source:     https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.6.3/Python-3.6.3.tar.xz

First I noticed that this conflicted with the version of the package (3.6.6), but after looking closer I realized that this tarball isn't used at all since this package primarily configures alternatives symlinks.  It doesn't hurt anything, it's just pointless and makes the SRPM larger for no reason.  Please remove it.

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

The package was using only the README and LICENSE files from the source, so we can separate those.

Comment 2 Tomas Orsava 2018-12-04 00:51:19 UTC
Could I ask for a qa_ack, Honza? It's a minor change.
