Comment 1 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-07-14 16:37:25 UTC
Thank you, Ariel!

I see the python3 package is missing "Requires: python3-grapefruit" (and grapefruit is, sadly, not yet in Fedora). Can software work without the dependency?

Comment 2 Ralph Bean 2016-07-14 17:12:53 UTC
Uh oh,

It looks like upstream started bundling grapefruit last month.

Comment 3 Ralph Bean 2016-07-14 17:13:50 UTC
(ah, they say the bundling is temporary until this issue is resolved )

Comment 4 Ariel O. Barria 2016-07-14 19:55:36 UTC
you are welcome.

Do you agree to eliminate "Requires: python-grapefruit" line and move forward with this package?, for now not required. when Justine reverse that change, it is added back to required.

is this possible?

Comment 5 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2016-07-15 08:53:14 UTC
No, we should not bundle the library. The reason for bundling is problems with pip, which Fedora does not suffer from.
In Fedora, grapefruit should be ported first (#1308557), and unbundled here – hopefully Justine will unbundle in upstream by then.

Alternatively, how to bundle properly is described here:
but I don't think that's necessary.

Comment 6 Ariel O. Barria 2016-07-15 13:27:45 UTC
ok, thanks for your time and explanation.

Comment 7 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 04:58:07 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

Comment 8 Ariel O. Barria 2016-08-02 16:28:31 UTC
upgrade of python-grapefruit:

Comment 9 Charalampos Stratakis 2017-05-26 17:57:39 UTC
Created attachment 1282718 [details]
Update to 0.3.0 and add a Python 3 subpackage

A patch for updating to latest version and providing a Python 3 subpackage.

The binaries are moved to the Python 3 subpackage.

Also each subpackage has a runtime requirement for liberation-sans-fonts, as while they the original fonts are unbundled and replaced [0], the font package was not explicitly required before, which could result in a traceback when e.g. running the fabulous-demo.

python-grapefruit is unbundled as well.

Ralph should I got ahead and push the changes?
