Description Tomas Orsava 2016-06-03 11:55:30 UTC
The python2-praw RPM requires both Python 2 and Python 3.

Except in very special circumstances, there is no need for one package
to drag in both Python stacks. Usually, this is a packaging error: for
example, a stray "/usr/bin/python" shebang in a Python 3 package can
introduce a Python 2 dependency.

Please split your package, or remove the stray dependencies.
There is a section on shebangs in the Python RPM Porting Guide [0]
which covers this issue.

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, you can
ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy
to help investigating or fixing this issue!

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

Created attachment 1196815 [details]
Update to 4.0.0b17 version

There is also removed `praw-multiprocess` as this functionality is no longer needed with PRAW 4.

Bug 1370446 solved the issue.

Hello, Honzo.

I am not sure if it's a good idea to update package to the beta version. Also, the latest package doesn't depend on both Pythons so we can probably close this bug.

What do you think about it?

Have a nice day.
