Description Tomas Orsava 2016-04-05 14:49:10 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!

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

Comment 4 Lumír Balhar 2016-08-15 10:26:31 UTC

Thank you for new specfile. It looks good to me but I think that this package should have separated subpackage for documentation because docs folder contains a lot of files.

What do you think about it?

Comment 5 Jan Beran 2016-08-17 14:48:48 UTC
Hi Lumír,

if you mean to separate docs directory like *.egg-info directory, it does not work as the docs directory is not presented in the particular build directories for Python 2 and Python 3 packages. Therefore, I would prefer to keep it as is.

Comment 6 Lumír Balhar 2016-08-17 15:53:18 UTC

I mean create separated subpackage like this:

> %package doc
> Summary:          %{summary}
> %description doc
> This package contains documentation for %{name}.

and then in %files section:

> %files doc
> %doc AUTHORS PKG-INFO README.rst docs/*

and two other packages package without docs folder.

Is it now clearer?

Hi Lumír,

Comment 8 Lumír Balhar 2016-08-18 08:05:37 UTC

Specfile looks good to me now. Thank you.

If maintainer has nothing against, we can push this changes after a week.
