Python 3 patch for specfile (deleted)

no flags Details | Diff

Description Ben Boeckel 2015-09-15 03:00:47 UTC
There is no python3-termcolor. PyPI says it is Python3 compatible.

Comment 1 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-04-19 12:45:44 UTC
A bit more formally:

 Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3
 package for Fedora.
 According to the Python packaging guidelines [0], software must be
 packaged for Python 3 if upstream supports it.
 The guidelines give detailed information on how to do this, and even
 provide an example spec file [1].
 The current best practice is to provide subpackages for the two Python
 versions (called "Common SRPM" in the guidelines). Alternatively, if
 nothing depends on your Python2 package, you can just switch to Python 3
 It's OK to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
 appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 24 as well.
 If you need more instructions, a guide for porting Python-based RPMs is
 available at [2].
 If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance with the
 porting, you can ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here.
 We'll be happy to help!

I can confirm that termcolor installed via pip3 works flawlessly with python3 on Fedora 23 (which I can't say about python3-xtermcolor, unfortunately).

So, a python3-termcolor package should be in order.

Python 3 patch for specfile

Hi Matthias,
here is the change needed to add Python 3 support. Could you please review it and do the update?

Koji build:

Comment 4 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-11 11:14:18 UTC
Dominika, have you tested the patch also in mock?

Comment 5 Dominika Krejčí 2016-05-11 11:29:56 UTC
(In reply to Tomas Orsava from comment #4)
> Dominika, have you tested the patch also in mock?

Yes, I have tried fedora-rawhide-x86_64, fedora-23-x86_64 and fedora-24-x86_64), all seemed fine.

Comment 6 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-11 11:58:49 UTC
In that case the patch looks good to me!

As Matthias hasn't responded for the past half a year, I hope he won't mind if we push the patch for him tomorrow.

Comment 7 Matthias Runge 2016-05-11 12:19:07 UTC
Oh yes, please continue here. I must admit, it doesn't even have any priority for me. The patch looked ok to me.

Comment 8 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-11 13:15:06 UTC
Thank you, Matthias!

Comment 9 Dominika Krejčí 2016-06-09 08:49:12 UTC
I have tested it and it looks good.
