I'm starting to wonder where the better value is: sticking closer to upstream or
preserving the imagefactory functionality (in this particular case). I haven't
diligently kept notes, but it seems that whenever I deploy kojid on a newer Fedora release
there is always trouble in getting things working. Installing yum, which wasn't a
Requires got me to where simple buildArch tasks would succeed but livemedia tasks
aren't working because of similar missing Requires on pycdio and python2-kickstart.
To be clear, I'm not faulting anybody's decisions. I'm just having more
troubles with Koji packaging than most things on offer in Fedora. Maybe that's just
the nature of something that is so flexible where many features are considered optional.
Mix in a little py2->py3 evolution and it's even more of a dark and twisty path.
Until the dilemma with imagefactory is resolved, my suggestion is to
build the upstream Koji spec and use that. It'll use Python 3 by
default on Fedora 30+. In Mageia 7, Koji is also fully Python 3, since
we don't have to care about imagefactory there.
