We are facing an annoying issue with python3 packages. There are several
openstack projects requiring python3-devel. However, this package only requires
the 'python3-base' in TW and Leap. This package though doesn't have the XML
module which project expect to find when they pull python3-devel. The XML
module is located in the python3 package.

We have a very strange situation in openSUSE where the python3 interpreter is
present in the python3-base package whilst the python3 package contains other
modules. As such, we need to do all sorts of things in order to have a
reasonably python3 core stack in openSUSE. Can this situation be improved

The python3 package is also described as 'Python3 interpreter' which is

I suggest to modify python3-devel to require the python3 package as well. Then
I would suggest to possibly merge python3 and python3-base since the former has
some core modules in it which seems like 95% of the python3 installations would
want them. Plus, I would expect the python3 interpreter to be in python3 not
python3-base so perhaps that's another reason to merge them

The situation is also similar in python2 with the xml module being in its own
package but I guess it's too late to deal with it now.

Thank you
