Description Elliott Sales de Andrade 2017-08-14 06:04:41 UTC
Description of problem:
The latest version of Rtree is 0.8.3 [1], which can be found on their GitHub releases page [2], but only 0.7.0 is packaged. The 0.8.x series also adds support for Python 3, which is not part of the current Fedora package.

You can find an updated spec file here:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide: 0.7.0-11.fc27
Fedora 26: 0.7.0-10.fc26
Fedora 25: 0.7.0-9.fc25
Fedora 24: 0.7.0-8.fc24

I'll be rebuiling rtree anyway as part of the python2 renaming (, and I'll build with your patch then. I didn't look at the PR, but the original changed the binary package name to camelcase erroneously, which I fixed locally.
