Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-20 19:59:14 UTC
subscription-manager failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix subscription-manager 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,
subscription-manager will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
subscription-manager will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Comment 5 Chris Snyder 2018-07-23 14:07:24 UTC
@dev looks like the fix for this will be to remove our usage of the reserved word "async" from the following (located in the build.log attachment):


  File "/usr/lib64/python3.7/", line 23
    from subscription_manager import async
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
*** Error compiling '/builddir/build/BUILDROOT/subscription-manager-1.21.5-3.fc29.ppc64le/usr/lib64/python3.7/site-packages/subscription_manager/gui/'...

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2018-07-23 14:21:45 UTC
That would be the fix, yes. As reported in bz1595885.

Comment 7 Miro Hrončok 2018-07-25 09:26:06 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 8 Miro Hrončok 2018-08-06 10:22:06 UTC
This is another friendly reminder.

Please take action.

Comment 9 Chris Snyder 2018-08-08 18:12:59 UTC
PR with the requisite changes:

Moving to assigned while waiting for review.

Comment 10 Miro Hrončok 2018-08-13 11:53:02 UTC
Thank You.
