Those are translated by python-singlespec to python2-pycrypto and

python2-pycryptodome = 3.6.1-1.1
python2-pycryptodome(x86-64) = 3.6.1-1.1


In my mind that's a bug.

The translation is intentional (the spec is used to build py2 and py3
packages in one go) - as for the old package name no longer being
there, that CAN be considered a bug indeed. Care to file a bug report?
Will be up to the maintainer to decide if it's worthy to add the legacy

If every package that requires python-pycrypto is going to have to be
edited why bother with the provides/obsoletes pair in the first place.

Obviously, we took care of everything inside the distro to not fall
over (and I think we missed nothing this time)
. Ever considered submitting your packages too? :)

Let me know if I should adjust my 2 spec files or not.

There is no way we can predict what all is 'out there' and how
everybody makes use of things. The shortest/quickest way is to change
to python2-pycryptodome, and no longer rely on old/unmaintained
pycrypto code.
