Description Dominika Krejčí 2016-07-27 11:47:34 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].

Since users aren't expected to import this tool from Python code,
you can just switch to /usr/bin/python3. Alternatively, if you want or
need to keep a Python 2 version, the current best practice is to provide
subpackages -- this is called "Common SRPM" in the guidelines.

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!

For anybody interest, the current upstream of the project is very much python3-only and very much active.

Isn't this a duplicate of bug 911509 (or other way around)?
