Because a module blacklists things and does not want those unshipped items installed while it is installed. You thus have to create a full module which contains all the previous content and the previously blacklisted content. So let us say the python27 module ships python27-foo but does not ship python27-foo-devel. You need to create a new module with all of python27, python27-foo so you can have python27-foo-devel. [This is because the Name-EpochVersionRelease between the python27-foo and python27-foo-devel need to match to install.. and modular builds get unique names. You can't have a seperate module with just python27-foo-devel in it because the first module has a filter which will 'conflict' at the modular level. This means this addon repo will have to have a 'conflicting' python27. [Because any update within a module means a complete new module build, you are either going to respin this BatteriesNotIncluded repo for every update, or just updating say a Python27 or a Python36 or a FreeIPA etc submodule.] -- Stephen J Smoogen.
