Comment 4 Mads Kiilerich 2023-07-25 18:15:30 UTC
FWIW, the Python 3.12 syntax warning has been fixed upstream -

Comment 5 Fedora Release Engineering 2023-08-16 07:54:44 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora Linux 39 development cycle.
Changing version to 39.

Comment 6 Guido Aulisi 2023-09-17 14:27:03 UTC
This failure is due to python 3.12 strict escape checking.
Ardour needs itstool to build, which is broken too.

Comment 8 Nils Philippsen 2023-10-13 23:02:06 UTC
The fixed itstool is available as a buildroot override, I’ve picked the linked fixes plus one to make Ardour build on Rawhide (with the new kissfft) and will build this for Fedora 39 and Rawhide.

Comment 9 Nils Philippsen 2023-10-14 07:45:30 UTC
The builds went well:


Because there is no change in the actual software, I won’t submit this an update.
