Description Miro Hrončok 2013-10-29 14:07:29 UTC
Hi, we would like to use Python 3 on the default installation instead of Python 2 on Fedora 22.


According to FESCo, we should firstly focus on the cloud image.

From that perspective, your package is considered as IMPORTANT - that means, is has to be updated to Python 3, for our intention come true.

The goal here is, that at least for F22 you should provide python3- prefixed subpackage.

Please, help us update to Python 3 flawlessly.

Check if upstream already support Python 3, if yes, use it and add the support to the package.

If upstream doesn't support Python 3 yet, encourage it to do so by sending patches and offering your help.

When upstream is dead or unwilling to support Python 3, say so and we can solve the problem together.

Chances are, that you ARE the upstream. In that case, everything is easier, just do it yourself.

There is a table on wiki, that should list your package. Chances are, that you can see an upstream link that covers the problem. Anyway, please update the table with information you know.


I offer my help with this task, so if you have no idea, how to work on this, or it is just not your priority, don't hesitate to ask for help.

(As you've already realized, this is a bulk text, so if something is not quite exact about your package, sorry for that, just ask)

So there is a PY3 port in upstream repo in separate tag. The port should work with Python 2.6 and 2.7 as well.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Garrett Holmstrom 2014-02-01 00:35:42 UTC
Once we add a python3-boto package we are stuck with it forever, so I really want to have full upstream support before going forward with this.  A periodically-updated side branch with no official releases does not instill a great deal of confidence.

Comment 5 Miro Hrončok 2014-08-01 00:13:58 UTC

This release includes backward-compatible support for Python 3.3 and 3.4...

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2014-08-15 11:00:32 UTC
Garrett, may I try to generate python3 subpackage?

Comment 7 Garrett Holmstrom 2014-08-22 21:16:02 UTC
I just got it to build!  You can expect it in testing shortly.

Comment 14 Colin Walters 2014-11-06 18:35:09 UTC
So...right now python-boto is the *only* thing pulling in Python3 for Fedora 21 cloud image.

Was it really necessary to ship this to all branches now, or can it wait for 22?

The python3 dep issue is bug #1152444
