Planex use yum-plugin-priorities - note that new projects should not use yum, but rather DNF. And this plugin is now part of DNF, see priority option in man dnf.conf.

There are no man pages:

Why? This is not needed. Version is version. Not version-release.

> %{__python} build
Should be:

> %{__python} install --single-version-externally-managed -O1 --root=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT --record=INSTALLED_FILES
Should be:

> Requires: createrepo
Createrepo is obsolete. You should use createrepo_c. It is much faster and is usually drop-in replacement.

This package use python2. Whole Fedora is now trying to migrate to Python3
It will be nice if you can cooperate with upstream on migrating to python3.

Any reason why is not included as %doc?

Upstream provides tests and you do not run them in %check section. You should run it.
