Description Michal Szymanski 2012-04-23 13:51:16 UTC
Description of problem: As with many other python modules, there are two pyfits rpms available, "pyfits" and "python3-pyfits". Unfortunately, installing 'pyfits' requires python3 to be also installed which IMHO is not proper. Python modules packages not starting with python3- in their names, should be intented for the default python 2.7 coming with F16

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.1-1

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install pyfits
Actual results:
 pyfits               x86_64        3.0.1-1.fc16           updates        440 k
Installing for dependencies:
 python3              x86_64        3.2.1-1.fc16           fedora          33 k
 python3-libs         x86_64        3.2.1-1.fc16           fedora         5.3 M
 python3-numpy        x86_64        1:1.6.1-2.fc16         updates        2.9 M

Expected results:
No dependencies on python3
