Description Tomáš Hrnčiar 2020-12-10 11:48:12 UTC
python-semver fails to build with Python 3.10.0a3.

=================================== FAILURES ===================================
_____________________________ [doctest] usage.rst ______________________________
446    True
448   The opposite does also work::
450    >>> dict(major=1) < v
451    True
453   If the dictionary contains unknown keys, you get a :class:`TypeError` exception::
455     >>> v > dict(major=1, unknown=42)

For all our attempts to build python-semver with Python 3.10, see:

Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test locally in mock if your package builds with Python 3.10:

Let us know here if you have any questions.

Python 3.10 will be included in Fedora 35. To make that update smoother, we're building Fedora packages with early pre-releases of Python 3.10.
A build failure prevents us from testing all dependent packages (transitive [Build]Requires), so if this package is required a lot, it's important for us to get it fixed soon.
We'd appreciate help from the people who know this package best, but if you don't want to work on this now, let us know so we can try to work around it on our side.

Comment 1 Tomáš Hrnčiar 2021-01-20 15:15:33 UTC
Hello, is there any update on this? It blocks testing of 8 other packages (mu, hatch, pipenv, python-natsort, python-nikola, python-paperwork-backend, python-xbout, python-pytenable) with Python 3.10. Thank you.

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2021-02-09 15:33:11 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 34 development cycle.
Changing version to 34.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2021-03-03 12:32:22 UTC
FEDORA-2021-95aa2f70ce has been pushed to the Fedora 35 stable repository.
If problem still persists, please make note of it in this bug report.
