Rich Shepard <rshepard at appl-ecosys.com> put forth the proposition:

> Yet when I queried /var/log/packages for sip packages it returned:
> python2-sip-4.19.20-x86_64-4_SBo
> python3-sip-4.19.20-x86_64-1_SBo
> sip-4.18-x86_64-1
> I assume the plain sip is for python2 but the SBo packages should be used by
> those applications wanting a newer version than the distribution one. What
> am I missing?


python2-sip is for PyQt5
python3-sip is for python3-PyQt5

The other sip can be ignored.

Which version of Qt5 did you have installed?

NB: Qt5 and some other things were updated this morning so you may
want to try again with the latest builds.
