Is it perhaps because bodhi-client only has an executable (it is
python code but not automatically compiled like libraries) so rpm
doesn't automatically provide the requires? On a side note if it is
not pre-compiled into bytecode then it probably doesn't make any
difference whether it is recompiled. bodhi-server (same source
package) does require python(abi) because it has libraries so in that
particular case it would result in bodhi-client being rebuilt...
(repoquery --whatrequires "python(abi)" | grep bodhi)

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
and those who don't...
