Description Tomas Orsava 2016-03-29 09:24:07 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 Jaromír,

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.


Comment 2 Lumír Balhar 2016-06-08 06:20:08 UTC

I am gonna provide the patch for ps_mem specfile with new release and Python3 as main interpreter.

Please, could somebody review it and if it will be ok, use it.
Thanks, Lumir

Comment 4 Tomas Orsava 2016-06-08 08:17:28 UTC
Hi Lumir!

The patch looks good, just a tiny thing: Please add a note to the changelog that you switched to using Python 3. All changes of note should be contained in the changelog.

Have you tried building and installing the package ans using it (in mock or anywhere else)?

I am providing new patch with fixed changelog.

I tested it with rpmbuild, rmplint, build in mock and installation in virtual machine with Fedora 24 and everything looks ok.

Have a nice day.

Comment 6 Tomas Orsava 2016-06-08 09:06:24 UTC
Lumir: Looks good to me!

Comment 7 Tomas Orsava 2016-06-08 09:07:55 UTC
Hi Jaromir,
as this is a bit of a time sensitive issue, we would really appreciate if you could take a look at the patch as soon as possible.
If you are time constrained right now, I hope you won't mind if we do the review and push the changes ourselves in case you are unable.

Thank you!

Comment 8 Lumír Balhar 2016-07-11 12:39:50 UTC

We found a bug in provided specfile - missing BuildRequires of python3-devel.

I will provide new patch for specfile in a moment.

Sorry for my mistake.
