Description Jitka Plesnikova 2017-10-30 15:36:11 UTC

Comment 1 Thomas Spura 2017-10-31 09:04:02 UTC
It seems that python3 is used during the build, but that python2 is required for building.

Did the default python implementation change with the update to scons-3.0.0?

Comment 2 Sergey Avseyev 2017-12-05 12:47:46 UTC
I've fixed this and also upgraded to 1.2.1 upstream version in my fork

I would be happy to take maintainership on this package if it is abandoned (I can see several issues, including that upgrade, on the tracker, which do not get any attention for year).

Right now I'm testing my fixes, and going to propose final fix soon.
