Description Raphael Groner 2018-03-07 09:30:33 UTC
Description of problem:
Upstream writes: Install Python 2.6 or newer. (For Python 3 support have a look at pdfminer.six).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install python3-pdfminer

Actual results:
package built from legacy sources, python2

Expected results:
package should be built from official sources for python3

Additional info:
There's a fork called pdfminer.six with official support for both python2 and python3, by help from six as the name indicates.

Maybe obsolete, then retire this package and start a new package review from the sources of pdfminer.six?

Comment 1 Ben Rosser 2018-03-07 15:05:08 UTC
The package _is_ pdfminer.six already; it has been for some time.

Is there something I'm missing?

Comment 2 Raphael Groner 2018-03-07 18:57:33 UTC
Thanks for clarification. Got confused because of the alternative GitHub URL. But it redirects to the concrete project, so it's no big issue.
Can you maybe use the project URL?

Comment 3 Ben Rosser 2018-03-07 22:10:05 UTC
Oh, good catch, I can change that now. 

For some historical context: goulu/pdfminer was the original home of pdfminer.six; it began a github fork of the actual upstream, euske/pdfminer. I guess at some point they renamed the repository.
