Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-04-26 23:09:06 UTC
I've always considered the unversioned obsoletes in RHEL7's python.spec weird. Does anyone know how to figure out when and why they were added in the first place?

The Fedora and RHEL7 commits both go to https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python/c/e0fde95b83781e4651383acdadb75000df8eb9ba

auto-import python-2.2.1-15 from python-2.2.1-15.src.rpm

Authored and Committed by cvsdist 14 years ago.

I guess this was added when Python got updated from 1 to 2 and the content obsoleted the python2 (extra) package.
I don't think it is needed at all, however not to break backwards compatibility, we should version them to < 2.7.5-99999
