Description Tomas Orsava 2016-02-23 16:29:37 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!


Comment 1 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-04-19 13:14:08 UTC
Jakub, do you need any help with switching to Python 3?

Comment 2 Jakub Ruzicka 2016-05-13 14:50:15 UTC
I plan to provide all python-*client py3 subpackages next week(s).

Comment 3 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-13 15:49:29 UTC
Hi Jakub, that will be greatly appreciated!

If you'd like some information on the porting process, there is a Python RPM Porting Guide available:

Comment 4 Jakub Ruzicka 2016-06-06 13:24:37 UTC
Sorry for the delay, I insisted on testing in RDO trunk first which took me some time to get hang of.

Here is my first attempt:

Please feel free to comment on the review, github account is used. Once this review is merged and tested, I'll use it as a template to port all the other *client libraries and sync to Fedora once it looks working.

Comment 5 Tomas Orsava 2016-06-06 14:06:42 UTC
Absolutely don't worry about the delay, we are grateful you're taking the time.

I commented on the review, so feel free to contact me with any questions!
Have a great day!

Comment 6 Jakub Ruzicka 2016-07-18 12:32:41 UTC
Thanks for your reviews, python2-ceilometerclient-2.3.0-3.fc25 is now in rawhide with py3 support.

Comment 7 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 04:27:55 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 19:08:27 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2017-12-12 11:05:05 UTC
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
