Comment 1 Athos Ribeiro 2017-01-12 02:06:10 UTC
Hi Peter,

Your package looks good: approved.

When installing the python2-* subpackage I realized that /usr/bin/python2.7 was not installed. At first I thought there was a problem with the package, but it does require python(abi) = 2.7.

There is a new python2 package in rawhide and its python2-libs subpackage is providing python(abi) for some reason, which makes mock happy enough not installing /usr/bin/python2.7

It would be nice to be more verbose on python3 packages %files section to avoid owning unwanted files. Some people forget about that and end up owning
which right now is the case of 42 packages for python3.6.
According to the guidelines, this directory should belong to system-python-libs.

Finally, rpmlint complains about python3.6 magic numbers. This is a known boug reported here:

Here is fedora-review output:

I'll tighten that up before initial commit.

Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-01-12 14:29:41 UTC
Package request has been approved:

Comment 4 Peter Robinson 2017-01-13 01:42:28 UTC
Imported, thanks.

FYI tightened both packages with:

+%files -n python2-shortuuid
+%license COPYING
+%files -n python3-shortuuid
+%license COPYING
