Description Tomas Orsava 2016-03-15 13:03:20 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!

Patch for python-zope-processlifetime.spec


This is my first patch submitted to Bugzilla. I hope everything is in order. I built and tested it on F23, also ran a mock build. I did't find any simple way to test functionality but comparing to previous version the files appeared to be in the right places for python3. Please review the patch and push it if it's ok.

Revised patch for python-zope-processlifetime specfile

Realised that I did not include python2 in the first patch. This one follows porting guide lines.

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

Comment 5 Ralph Bean 2016-07-27 20:09:25 UTC
Looks good to me.  Thanks!

I made a few adjustments to your patch to use some of the modern python macros:

Thanks again!
