This looks incomplete & broken to me.

The Provides satisfies any dependancies on the old name, but you're
missing an Obsoletes to tell RPM the upgrade path. Trying to installing
the new python2-libvirt RPM on an existing system fails because it
clashes with libvirt-python.

A further flaw in your script is that its changed libvirt-python to
python2-libvirt, but not changed libvirt-python3 to python3-libvirt,
so the naming inconsistency is worse than before your proposed change.

Also the %_description stuff is just ugly
