FWIW - they "python(abi) = ##" requires is added by /usr/lib/rpm/pythondeps.sh
as part of the standard rpm dependency generation. So yes, for this to work
with the scl, either the scl needs to provide "python(abi) = 2.7" or you will
need to disable the automatic requires generation or filter out the
We're all new to this SCL stuff.... :)
