Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-20 17:37:53 UTC
python-sphinx-intl failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix python-sphinx-intl at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
python-sphinx-intl will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
python-sphinx-intl will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 4 Miro Hrončok 2018-07-25 09:25:59 UTC
(This is a mass bug update. Forgive me if things are not 100% accurate for this one.)

At this moment, your package still requires Python 3.6. This will cause broken upgrades to Fedora 29. Please prioritize this rebuild.

Let me know if you need help from the Python maintenance team figuring out why the package FTBFS.

Consider orphaning the package if you don't have time for it.

Consider retiring the package if upstream is dead and nothing depends on it in Fedora.

If you are blocked by other packages (I've recently tried to set the Bugzilla metadata to reflect that), consider helping there as well. Thank you.

Comment 5 Julien Enselme 2018-07-26 08:36:36 UTC
Tests are failing for a strange reason (full failure is attached):
TypeError: 'path' object is not callable

It looks really weird to me and if someone in the Python maintenance team has an idea, that would be great.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2018-07-26 08:45:50 UTC is setting magic __dir__ variable and that confuses pytest. Reanme it and the test run:

Thanks. Package rebuilt.

Thanks again Miro!
