Description Tomas Orsava 2016-02-26 13:15:19 UTC
Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3
package for Fedora.

According to the Python packaging guidelines [0], software must be
packaged for Python 3 if upstream supports it.
The guidelines give detailed information on how to do this, and even
provide an example spec file [1].

The current best practice is to provide subpackages for the two Python
versions (called "Common SRPM" in the guidelines). Alternatively, if
nothing depends on your Python2 package, you can just switch to Python 3

It's ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 24 as well.

If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance with the
porting, you can ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here.
We'll be happy to help!

Hello Yohan,

Do you need any help adding Python 3 support to the RPM?

If you need more instructions, a [guide] for porting Python-based RPMs is available.

Hi Yohan,
here is the change needed to add Python 3 support and update the version. Could you please review it and do the update?

Koji scratch build:

Also tested in Mock (fedora-23-x86_64, fedora-24-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-i386).

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

Patch looks good to me. Thank you.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2016-08-16 10:55:04 UTC
do you mind if I push this? If you don't reply in a week, I assume it's OK.
