<p>I think the subpackages approach is simpler, and has a lower cognitive burden on the user than the "reverse provides requires rich dependencies" (that's a mouthful ...). I am also reluctant to introduce another source of "if" rich dependencies, which still aren't really correctly handled by some tools, not even some dnf commands (e.g. repoclosure)</p>
<p>Can we extend pyp2rpm to generate these "extras" subpackages automatically in the .spec files? rust2rpm does it this way for optional crate features.</p>
