Package Build
Builds Okay:

Package Review

[x] = Pass, [!] = Fail, [-] = Not applicable, [?] = Not evaluated
[ ] = Manual review needed

- Sources used to build the package do not match the upstream source, as provided
  in the spec URL. Checksum differences are provided at the bottom of this review.
- Your .spec file identifies a GPL license, yet your GitHub page and tar.gz file
  includes a GPLv3 license.  I imagine this is just a typo in your spec?
- You should have a peek at
  From here you'll see some things you're doing nicely and some spots you just need
  a few tweeks such as:
     - drop reference to %{?python_enable_dependency_generator}
     - BuildRequires: %{py3_dist coverage} should read:
           BuildRequires: python%{python3_pkgversion}-coverage
     -  You need to apply this to all of the BuildRequrires.
- There are a few rpmlint warnings below which are not show-stoppers by any means, but
  useful to show as you can optionally fix them up too! :)
- %check is disabled; but i can see that recently python-yapf (bz#1691609) has been pushed
  upstream now. So you can turn that back on and try it out to see how it works for you.
