Description Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-02-17 12:39:27 UTC
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 fine to do this in Rawhide only.

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!

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Hello Jason,

Do you need any help adding Python 3 support to the RPM?

If you need more instructions, a [guide] for porting Python-based RPMs is available.


Comment 3 Jason E. Rist 2016-04-20 14:02:34 UTC
Hi Dominika - I don't think so - this product is entirely deprecated.

Comment 4 Dominika Krejčí 2016-04-20 14:27:12 UTC
I'm collecting information on Python 2-only packages. Could you tell me more about the state of this package?

Is it just not useful to anyone any more? (In that case, should it be removed from Fedora?) Or is it the case that new software should not be built on this package, but there still can be some users that need it?

Was the project replaced by another alternative? (I'd like to point people to that alternative if there is one.)

Comment 5 Jason E. Rist 2016-04-20 15:21:20 UTC
This package should be deprecated and removed, as it serves no purpose. 

The project is replaced with a few alternatives - the tuskarclient will be replaced by an API provided by Mistral and TripleO - and and the UI is replaced by TripleO UI -

We managed to retire python-tuskarclient from rawhide with Jason, so we can close this ticket!
