[docs] [issue16237] bdist_rpm SPEC files created with distutils may be distro specific
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Nick Coghlan:
In resolving 14443 we effectively embedded the vendor macros in the SPEC file generated by bdist_rpm on older versions of RHEL (and derivatives).
While I think that's a necessary evil (in order to create Python 3 RPMs that actually work properly at all on those platforms), we should note the distro limitation somewhere in the documentation: even if the RPM would otherwise work properly on Fedora *and* RHEL (and perhaps even openSUSE), the embedded copy of the vendor post install macros may misfire.
