Why not call the package PyQt5? The guidelines say that python- is only needed if the upstream name does not start with "Py".

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2014-01-09 19:28:01 UTC
read them again, the Py exception was removed recently.

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2014-01-09 19:43:41 UTC
Sigh… Don't you love braindead guidelines? :-/

It is there to allow python2 and python3 packages with a similar name I guess.

Btw. the BR should be python2-devel not python-devel.

Comment 5 Till Maas 2014-02-05 13:54:24 UTC
Also %{__python2} should be used instead of %{__python}

Comment 6 Till Maas 2014-02-05 17:12:31 UTC
btw. did you consider building for python3 as well? Debian does it and there is at least one user that would like to use a python3 package:

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2014-02-06 17:06:08 UTC
Certainly, though I'd prefer to focus on reviewing a minimal package first.  Then we can consider adding features once it's imported.

Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2014-02-06 17:08:58 UTC
* Thu Feb 06 2014 Rex Dieter <rdieter> 5.2-2
- BR: python2-devel, use %%__python2 macro

The latest version looks fine for me. Nothing to complain.

Git done (by process-git-requests).

Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2014-02-15 16:49:55 UTC
fyi, if anyone comes here from,

Currently, PyQt5 is supported only on rawhide/f21+, since it requires a newer version of sip that is currently in fedora 20.  I'm investigating a possible sip update for f20 too, but as that would require updates to other dependant packages, it's not a certainty.

Comment 14 Kevin Kofler 2014-02-15 23:46:52 UTC
I see PyKDE 3 still failing to rebuild against the new SIP. :-( I need to have a look whether we can fix it somehow. Is there anything else that doesn't rebuild cleanly?

Comment 15 Kevin Kofler 2014-02-15 23:48:56 UTC
I see upstream released PyKDE 3.16.7 in 2013:
We currently have 3.16.6. Maybe 3.16.7 helps here. I'll try importing it.

Comment 16 Kevin Kofler 2014-02-16 00:08:17 UTC
So 3.16.7 doesn't have anything that we don't have already (we can still rebase on the latest tarball though, so we can drop a 787-byte patch, LOL), but openSUSE has a patch and couple hacks that could help.

Comment 17 Daniel Miranda 2014-06-03 12:59:52 UTC
Were there too many hurldles for porting this to F20? I'd really like to develop using PyQt5, but installing from Rawhide right now brings Python 3.4, which will mess with quite a lot of software I have installed already.

Comment 18 Daniel Miranda 2014-06-03 13:08:38 UTC
To be clear, I'm trying to use python3-qt5 from Rawhide on F20, and it's now pulling Python 3.4.
