Description Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-06 19:41:56 UTC
python-nistats failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f32

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix python-nistats at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
python-nistats will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 33,
python-nistats will be retired, if it still fails to build.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.

Comment 5 Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-16 04:34:38 UTC
Dear Maintainer,

your package has not been built successfully in 32. Action is required from you.

If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate [1]. If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages [2], your package
will be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

A week before the mass branching of Fedora 33 according to the schedule [3],
any packages not successfully rebuilt at least on Fedora 31 will be
retired regardless of the status of this bug.

The neuro-sig is working on these bugs.

Comment 7 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2020-02-16 19:09:43 UTC
We're waiting for the next release, and/or the merge of nistats to nilearn: whichever happens before.

Comment 8 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2020-02-27 12:45:33 UTC
b2 is out, hopefully that'll fix it:

Comment 9 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2020-05-05 08:34:46 UTC
nistats has been retired, and will be included in nilearn from the next release. When that is out, I'll retire nistats and close these bugs.

Comment 10 Miro Hrončok 2020-05-25 13:02:23 UTC
This comment is mass posted to all bugs blocking the Python 3.9 tracker, sorry if it is not 100 % relevant. When in doubt, please ask.

The Python 3.9 rebuild is in progress in a Koji side tag.

If you fix this bug, please don't rebuild the package in regular rawhide, but do it in the side tag with:

    $ fedpkg build --target=f33-python

The rebuild is progressing slowly and it is possible this package won't have all the required build dependencies yet. If that's the case, please just leave the fix committed and pushed and we will eventually rebuild it for you.

You are not asked to go and try rebuild all the missing dependencies yourself. If you know there is a bootstrap loop in the dependencies, let me know and we can untangle it together.

If you want to test your fix or reproduce the failure, you can still use the Copr repo mentioned in the initial comment of this bug:

Comment 11 Miro Hrončok 2020-05-29 07:12:09 UTC
Python 3.9 update: The f33-python side tag is currently being merged.

New builds in f33-python are no longer possible, but python3 is not yet updated to Python 3.9 in rawhide. You can check when Python is Python 3.9 with:

    $ koji wait-repo f33-build --build python3.9-3.9.0~b1-3.fc3

And build the packages normally after that.

Comment 12 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2020-06-07 08:33:32 UTC
Still waiting for a new upstream release for nilearn so nistats can be obsoleted.

Comment 13 Miro Hrončok 2020-08-22 10:30:49 UTC
Hello. This comment is mass posted to all 16 bugzillas for packages that failed to rebuild with Python 3.9 (and, in most cases, also fail to install on Fedora 33 and 34). Apologies if some of the suggestions or questions don't apply 100%.

Fedora 33 Beta Freeze starts next week on Tuesday, 2020-08-25. I haven't spammed this bugzilla because it is in ASSIGNED, or I've seen upstream has been notified.

Please consider what to do here. Is this failure critical? For example, can a test be temporarily skipped to make this package build? Is it possible to fix or workaround the failure before Fedora 33 Beta? Or before Fedora 33 Final? If not, would it make sense to retire the package (even temporarily) before the release to unblock updates from Fedora 31 or Fedora 32?

In case you need any assistance with a Python-related problem with the build, don't hesitate to let me know and I'll try to have a look.

Thank you!

Comment 14 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2020-09-07 17:04:00 UTC
I was hoping to retire nistats after nilearn 0.7 was released, but that seems to be a long wait. I've therefore retired nistats now. Please let me know if there's anything else to do here. (I haven't orphaned it yet)
