I'm having a problem with packaging crmsh for RH distros on OBS: It

I can't see any direct requirement in the spec file which would do this
other than requiring python itself.

You get automatic requirements on shebang interpreters, i.e., what is
listed after "#!" at start of
your script.

We're actually moving away from using /usr/bin/python. Would it help if
you changed it to
/usr/bin/python2 ?

For what it's worth, we're moving away from /usr/bin/python in Fedora
as well. We recommend using /usr/bin/python2 or /usr/bin/python3 for
the version of python it should be used with.

Thank you, your recommendations seems to have put me on the right
track. I managed to clean up the binary requirements, but something
weird is happening when I change the shebang to /usr/bin/python2: The
rpm ends up still depending on /usr/bin/python. Could it be because
/usr/bin/python2 is a symlink to /usr/bin/python in the build
environment or something like that?


Here on this tumbleweed machine /usr/bin/python is a symlink to python2.7

Sorry for my usless answer should have drank my coffee and read the
thread properly
