Failing build log for armv7l

Description of problem:

While python-chaospy is a noarch package with pure-Python sources, it has architecture-dependent test failures that prevent it from building from source on 32-bit platforms (i686 and armv7hl).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.3.3-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. fedpkg scratch-build --srpm --arches x86_64 i686 aarch64 ppc64le s390x armv7hl

Actual results:

Builds fail on 32-bit architectures with 68 failing tests.

Expected results:

Builds succeed on all supported architectures.

Additional info:

This is the cause of intermittent failing builds in Koschei, e.g. https://koschei.fedoraproject.org/build/11532005. The build fails whenever the package is (arbitrarily, since it is noarch) assigned to a 32-bit builder.

There are a few obvious options:

  - Fix the problems causing the tests to fail, and send the patches upstream.
    This seems like it could be nontrivial, and I don’t know whether upstream
    is interested in supporting 32-bit platforms. If it proves to be practical,
    it is the best solution.

  - Decide the problems are not serious enough to block inclusion on 32-bit
    architectures. Skip the tests as follows:

      (a) Remove “BuildArch:      noarch” from the base package. This forces
          it to be built on all architectures (quickly revealing
          architecture-dependent problems like this one), and allows you to
          use %ifarch/%endif conditionals to skip tests.

      (b) Add “BuildArch:      noarch” to each subpackage (python3-chaospy
          and python-chaospy-doc), so that all of the binary RPMs are still

      (c) Use “%ifarch %{ix86} %{arm32}” and the -k option to %pytest to
          skip tests that fail on 32-bit architectures. A pattern I sometimes
          use is:

          %ifarch …
          k="${k-}${k+ and not }test_foo_bar"
          k="${k-}${k+ and not }(TestCaseBaz and test_bat)"
          %pytest tests -k "${k-}"

    Consider filing a bug upstream to see if they are interested in fixing
    the problems.

  - Decide the problems *are* serious enough to block inclusion on 32-bit
    architectures. Follow the example in

    Keep “BuildArch:      noarch” in the base package, but also add
    “ExcludeArch:    %{ix86} %{arm32}”. File issues in Red Hat Bugzilla
    blocking https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=F-ExcludeArch-x86
    and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=F-ExcludeArch-ARM, as
    prescribed by

    Consider filing a bug upstream to see if they are interested in fixing
    the problems.

    This obviously affects any dependent packages. It looks like there aren’t
    any at the moment.
