Description John Marshall 2018-07-03 10:50:06 UTC
Description of problem:

We have both software that requires Python 3.5 or later, and software that needs to be built with Cython. We wish to standardise on one installation of Python 3.x.

Hence we want to use EPEL 7's python36 family of Python 3.6 RPMs, and it would be useful if Cython were packaged as a part of this family; hence we'd appreciate it if EPEL provided a python36-Cython package.

Comment 1 Carl George 2018-07-03 22:21:50 UTC
Looking over this request, this will need python36-coverage, python36-nose, and python36-numpy first.

Comment 3 Carl George 2018-09-19 13:23:27 UTC
I saw that the test suite fails on ppc64 only.  Would it be appropriate to skip the test suite only on that arch?

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2018-09-19 16:06:24 UTC
Depends.  If it's the test that is wrong, sure.  If it's exposing an issue with Cython, it's just going to show up later when other cython dependent builds fail on ppc64.  Needs to be checked out first.

Comment 5 Tim Orling 2018-09-19 16:59:24 UTC
There is an upstream issue for the numpy_subarray [1].

So, that subset of tests is failing with big endian ppc64 (ppc64le succeeds). _IF_ we can just skip the numpy_subarray tests for only ppc64 then at least it would get us past the appearance of FTBFS.

For reference, Debian skips numpy_subarray and numpy_memoryview [2].
