Description Tomas Orsava 2016-05-06 13:23:56 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 you need more instructions, a guide for porting Python-based RPMs is
available at [2].
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 Conrad,

do you need any help adding Python 3 support to the RPM?

add Python 3 & update version

Hi Conrad,
here is the change needed to add Python 3 support and update the version. Could you please review it and do the update?

Koji scratch build:

Also tested in Mock (fedora-23-x86_64, fedora-24-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-i386).

Comment 3 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 04:31:10 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

Hello Dominika.

I've found some bugs in your patch:
- You should use %{name} and %{version} in source URL.
- This package is application with something in %{_bindir} so you should to rename this file after build in one version of Python and then make symlinks.
- You probably have typo in summary in subpackages - single 'm' in macro name.

Have a nice day.

Patch looks good to me now. Thank you.

Comment 7 Miro Hrončok 2016-08-16 10:55:20 UTC
do you mind if I push this? If you don't reply in a week, I assume it's OK.
