Description Miro Hrončok 2020-02-28 09:24:22 UTC
python-argcomplete fails to build with Python 3.8.2 or 3.9.0a4+:

test_special_characters_double_quoted (test.test.TestFish) ... unexpected success


For the 3.9 build logs, see:

For all our attempts to build python-argcomplete with Python 3.9, see:

Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test locally in mock if your package builds with Python 3.9:

Let us know here if you have any questions.

Python 3.9 will be included in Fedora 33. To make that update smoother, we're building Fedora packages with early pre-releases of Python 3.9.
A build failure prevents us from testing all dependent packages (transitive [Build]Requires), so if this package is required a lot, it's important for us to get it fixed soon.
We'd appreciate help from the people who know this package best, but if you don't want to work on this now, let us know so we can try to work around it on our side.

Next steps:

1. Try to updating to latest version
2. Try reproducing from upstream git if (1) doesn't help
3. Report to upstream if (2) is reproducible on master,or backport the fixer if available

oh, so this is not Python related, but fish:
