Comment 1 Sandro 2022-10-20 14:12:47 UTC
I take this one.

Comment 2 Sandro 2022-10-20 15:15:35 UTC
This package requires mingw32-python3-build and mingw64-python3-build provided by mingw-python-build (BZ#2136235), which has not yet been reviewed. I saw that this available in you Copr repo. Maybe I should start with that review first.?

Comment 3 Sandro Mani 2022-10-20 15:23:41 UTC
They both depend on each-other, hence the bootstrapping logic. Don't see any other way than reviewing this and mingw-python-pep517 with

%bcond_without bootstrap

rather than

%bcond_with bootstrap

Spec URL:

Comment 4 Sandro 2022-10-20 17:05:54 UTC
I see. Just looked at the spec file of mingw-python-build, which has an unconditional requirement for mingw{32,64}-python3-installer. I'll review that as well since you picked up scikit-misc too. I'll start with this one.

Comment 5 Sandro 2022-10-20 20:39:14 UTC
I tried a build from the bootstrap SRPM local and in Copr. Both fail with:

Processing files: mingw32-python3-installer-0.5.1-1.fc38~bootstrap.noarch
error: File must begin with "/": %{mingw32_python3_hostsitearch}/installer/
error: File must begin with "/": %{mingw32_python3_hostsitearch}/installer-0.5.1+rpmbootstrap.dist-info

Looks like an unexpanded macro. Is that a leftover from the abandoned BZ#2134021?

My Copr build:

Comment 6 Sandro Mani 2022-10-20 20:51:04 UTC
Oh, actually no, that's a macro I've introduced in mingw-python3-3.11 in COPR, but not yet backported to mingw-python3-3.10 in rawhide. I've now added it to mingw-python3-3.10.7-3.fc38.

Comment 7 Sandro 2022-10-21 18:55:33 UTC

[!]: %check is present and all tests pass.

The PyPI tarball does include tests. What's the reason %check has been omitted entirely?

For the rest it's looking good!

Comment 8 Sandro Mani 2022-10-21 19:30:16 UTC
Generally for MinGW packages tests are omitted as they cannot be executed with cross-compiled binaries unless you pull in Wine. For platform-independent packages like pure-python modules, tests could be run, but I've not yet set up any macros to do so. I'd rather first finish the python-3.11 migration and then look into it at a later time.

Comment 9 Sandro 2022-10-30 13:24:33 UTC
One last nitpick:

- is missing in %files
=> tarball provides Please include it as %doc

Going by your Copr build the dependencies will work out and everything builds. I'm not gonna redo that exercise.

Package is approved.
