Description of problem:
This is probably a bug for upstream, but that just seems really really really weird. python has FTP bindings, after all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to install deja-dup, which uses duplicity
2. look at yum output
notice a FTP client I haven't used in about 10 years.
I haven't used deja-dup for the last 10 years. If you wish such heavy changes
(which are upstream decisions, not downstream ones), please get really in touch
with upstream, convince upstream or submit a patch at upstream.
