createrepo_c: Use Python 3 instead of Python 2
Last modified: 2016-01-05 10:47:59 EST
Hi, we would like to use Python 3 on the default installation instead of Python 2 on Fedora 22.
While this package is not in minimal buildroot, it belongs to fedora-packager stack. We would like to switch to Python 3 there as well.
The goal here is, that for F22 you should use Python 3 instead of Python 2 in this package.
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)
Note that createrepo_c will be the default in F22 (or at least we are working towards that goal). Createrepo shares some parts of code with yum itself, not sure how easy would be to migrate that codebase.
So should we close this?
Let's keep this open for tracking purposes, there are still some uncertainties with createrepo_c. Once we are 100% sure it will make it to F22, we can close this one.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
What is the status with createrepo_c please?
Forwarding to Tomas Mlcoch who is the main developer. I believe everything works in createrepo_c except for delta rpms ...
This is a first time I see this bug. Well, createrepo_c doesn't support python 3 now, but it shouldn't be a big deal to implement this. I'll put this into my backlog.
Shouldn't this be switched to createrepo_c?
Rawhide build of createrepo_c with Python 3 support is available:
