Description Tomas Orsava 2016-02-24 12:59:31 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!

Praveen, do you need any help with adding support for Python 3?

Comment 2 Praveen Kumar 2016-05-16 16:25:53 UTC
@Petr I apologize for a long delay response but if you want to co-maintain this package I am happy to provide you access. otherwise I will update it in on coming weekend.

Comment 3 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-05-17 08:33:55 UTC
There are many packages that need this update, so if you find time to do it, it would help a lot. Also, it's best done by someone who's familiar with the package.

If you need more assistance, you can look at the RPM porting guide [0], or ask – I'll be happy to help or improve any unclear parts of the guide.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

New specfile looks good to me. If maintainer has nothing against, we can push it after a week.
