Description Tomas Orsava 2016-02-26 12:48:38 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 ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 24 as well.

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!

Hello Brian,

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.

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

Update to 0.8 version including Python 3 subpackage

* The update is very conservative to avoid older RHEL impact, i.e. there are not used modern macros (%py2_build, %py3_build, %py2_install, %py3_install).
* There are commented nosetests in %check section as they fail by "error: invalid command 'nosetests'".

Hello Brian,

please could you review the attached updated spec file?

Thank you.

Best regards

A newer version to reflect the actual spec file. Testing is conditional and temporarily switched-off.

I think it is time to start non-responsive package maintainer process.

Indeed. Needinfo with no reply between June and September does not look good.

Rawhide done. Closing. Reopen if older Fedoras are needed.

Comment 10 Red Hat Bugzilla 2023-09-14 03:18:34 UTC
The needinfo request[s] on this closed bug have been removed as they have been unresolved for 1000 days
