Subject: test files in a python flat package
I noticed that the test files (/usr/lib64/python3.7/test) for python37
are occupying more than 50% in the package size, when I was cleaning
the files in my local machine.
If we actually do not use the test files, I do not want to include the
files in the python37 package.
Just want to separate the files as python37-test sub package.
Because of just reducing the file size.
How do you think? I want to hear your opinions.
Here is the bugzilla ticket.
Separate the test directory as python37-test

That is actually a valid concern and testing with multiple python interpreters is not the
most disk-space friendly use case.
However those packages were intended to be flat, the whole interpreter in one binary rpm.
In my opinion it's the only
pragmatic choice when you take into account the maintenance burden of so many
interpreters. Also if we split the tests to a subpackage
I can imagine having requirements for splitting them up more in the future as well.
Thus I would say that I wouldn't like to split them up and just keep them as it is.
I'd be open of course to other possible solutions/arguments.
