Description Tomas Orsava 2016-04-01 15:29:36 UTC
Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3 package for Fedora. According to the Python packaging guidelines , software must be packaged for Python 3 if upstream supports it. The guidelines give detailed information on how to do this, and even provide an example spec file . The current best practice is to provide subpackages for the two Python versions (called "Common SRPM" in the guidelines). Alternatively, if nothing depends on your Python2 package, you can just switch to Python 3 entirely. It's ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 24 as well. If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance with the porting, you can ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy to help!  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Python  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Python#Example_common_spec_file

I will work on this. Hope Kevin is not already working on this.

I took a quick look, but didn't really start working on it. ;) It's all yours....
Comment 3 Parag Nemade 2016-04-08 13:14:55 UTC
I have moved fontforge module from python2 to python3 now.
