Description Tomas Orsava 2016-03-02 16:04:53 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!

I think it'd be better for everyone if the Python team just went
in and made the changes.  Apparently building twice and setting
PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3 the second time should be sufficient.

Patch to port the specfile to Python 3

I polished Dominika's patch a bit. Specifically I've done away with the removal of the devel-file as we aren't sure at this point if it is needed or not. Better to live with an RPMlint warning.

Comment 4 Tomas Orsava 2016-04-26 13:43:33 UTC
Here's a Koji scratch build of the resulting SRPM:

Comment 5 Miro Hrončok 2016-04-28 11:42:04 UTC
Let's roll.

Comment 7 Miro Hrončok 2016-04-28 12:01:14 UTC
Waiting only on ARM build.

Tomáš, Dominika, please check if everything works as expected

Comment 8 Miro Hrončok 2016-04-28 12:08:18 UTC
ARM build finished.

Patch to change shebang to Python 3

I checked it in mock and found out I forgot one shebang still pointing to Python 2. I attached a patch (against the current contents of the dist-git) that fixes the issue.

I apologize for the omission.

Thanks for fixing/implementing this.

Comment 13 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-06 12:17:51 UTC
We're glad to have helped, Richard!

Do you think you could test the package if it's working as expected?

Comment 14 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-11 09:59:45 UTC
I'm not as familiar with the package, but after some testing inside mock, everything looks good! Thanks everyone!
