Description Charalampos Stratakis 2016-02-01 12:13:19 UTC
The python3-solv RPM requires both Python 2 and Python 3.

Except in very special circumstances, there is no need for one package
to drag in both Python stacks. This is a packaging error:  a stray "/usr/bin/python" shebang in an example file: /usr/share/doc/python3-solv/pysolv.

Please remove the stray dependency.

It's fine to do this in Rawhide only.

If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance, you can
ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy
to help investigating or fixing this issue!

Any update on that?

Comment 2 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 15:39:12 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Igor Gnatenko 2016-04-09 09:43:03 UTC
now we don't ship any docs like pysolv for quite some time, so closing this. (at least for f24+)

Thanks for notification!
