Description Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-02-17 16:12:34 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 (e.g. for packages that just
contain /usr/bin tools), you can just switch to Python 3 entirely.

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 Peter,

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.

Add Python 3

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

Koji scratch build:

Hello, Dominiko.

In your patch source URL doesn't work. You probably wanted something like %{url}/archive/%{version}.tar.gz#%{srcname}-%{version}.tar.gz

Otherwise, it looks good to me.

Added Python 2/3 subpackages and apps switched to Python 3


During another review I've found few issues:
- Packages 9pfs and fuse9p have still shebangs with Python 2 (I don't know why) and related dependency on /usr/bin/python2
- You shouldn't use - better is to generate with `make force-version`
- I think that if we switch 9pfs and fuse9p to Python 3 it should depend on python3-py9p instead python-py9p which is python 2 version.

I am providing new patch, where all these issues are fixed.

Dominiko, could you please do a review?

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi Lumír,
your patch looks good to me. If the maintainer has nothing against, we can push this changes after a week. :)

Comment 9 Charalampos Stratakis 2016-11-18 16:19:12 UTC
Fixed some minor additional issues that I identified and pushed the changed for rawhide. If you would like it for F25 as well, please reopen the bug.
