Comment 2 Jan Staněk 2019-01-04 11:35:53 UTC
Robert, thanks for the patch! I went and refactored the package in question to comply with the current recommended practices for Python (and EPEL) packages, which means I ended re-creating the patch instead of applying, but it gave me a head start -- so thanks again.

In order to "cleanly" support builds for multiple python versions, I ended up renaming the package to `python-bsddb3`, with subpackages generated for python{3,34,37,…}. However the rename requires a new package review [1]. Would you be interested in helping with that in order to speed up resolution of this bug?
