Description Tomas Orsava 2018-12-12 20:37:15 UTC
The `anaconda-core` package has a dependency on python3-coverage, and python3-coverage depends on the python36 module, which is then dragged in.

The only change needed by anaconda is to switch the dependency from the `python3-coverage` package name to `platform-python-coverage`.

The new platform-python-coverage package will be available in the next nightly repos.

Comment 1 Jiri Konecny 2018-12-13 10:48:22 UTC
Is the `platform-python-coverage` backward compatible or do we need to change our code to replace the `python3-coverage`?

Comment 2 Tomas Orsava 2018-12-13 13:11:17 UTC
The package is completely the same, except it doesn't contain the /usr/bin/coverage-3* executables. Therefore no change to the code is necessary.
