Description Miro Hrončok 2019-08-31 13:07:33 UTC
python-sphinx-autobuild fails to build with Python 3.8.0b3 in Fedora 32.

See the build failures at

It is a dependency problem:

No matching package to install: 'python3-port-for'

It is not important the problem is not relevant to Python 3.8, this issue is blocking the Python 3.8 rebuilds.
If this package won't build with 3.8, it won't be installable, along with all its dependent packages, in Fedora 32 and further.

Furthermore, as it fails to install, its dependent packages will fail to install and/or build as well.

Please rebuild the package in Fedora 32 (rawhide).

Let us know here if you have any questions. Thank You!

Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2019-09-19 10:03:45 UTC
Another dependency will go away:

		python-sphinx-autobuild-0.7.1-13.fc31.noarch requires python3-pathtools = 0.1.2-19.fc32
		python-sphinx-autobuild-0.7.1-13.fc31.src requires python3-pathtools = 0.1.2-19.fc32

python-pathtools is orphaned for 6 weeks.

Maybe we should retire python-sphinx-autobuild, it is a leaf package. How does that sound?

I agree, I had a look, and have a same opinion!
