Schemes and collections are generated as meta-packages, not really
shipping any files, but dependent on required collections and
packages. Here is a sample of scheme-context for example:

%package scheme-context
Summary: ConTeXt scheme
Version: %{tl_version}
Release: 13822%{?dist}
BuildArch: noarch
Requires: texlive = %{tl_version}
Requires: texlive-collection-context
Requires: texlive-collection-metapost
Requires: texlive-xetex
Requires: texlive-tex-gyre
Requires: texlive-antt
Requires: texlive-antp
Requires: texlive-iwona
Requires: texlive-kurier
Requires: texlive-lm
Provides: tex(context)

no conflicts :) By installing a wider scheme only missing packages are
