Patch to fix pulling Python 2 in python3-os-testr (deleted)
2016-12-07 13:34 UTC, Iryna Shcherbina
no flags Details

Description Dominika Krejčí 2016-11-02 15:31:12 UTC
The python3-os-testr 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 25 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!

Koji scratch build:

Comment 2 Iryna Shcherbina 2017-06-19 08:59:38 UTC
Reopening the issue, as it appeared again after the package update to version 0.8.0 [0]:

$ dnf repoquery --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide --requires python3-os-testr

The patch from Comment 1, which got unapplied in the last update, should fix the issue.


Comment 3 Jan Kurik 2017-08-15 08:28:33 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.

Comment 4 Ben Cotton 2018-11-27 18:32:20 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2018-11-30 17:48:19 UTC
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2018-11-30 18:18:51 UTC
