I've added "Blocks: FE-NEEDSPONSOR" as you need a sponsor.

Have you reached out to the PyOpenGL maintainers to see if they plan to build a python3 subpackage? Since the python2 and python3 versions of PyOpenGL are build from the same source tarball, it would make sense for both sets of packages to be built from the same SRPM. There is more advice about this on the Python Packaging Guidelines.

The official packaging Guidelines to browse for information:


You can run rpmlint on your SRPM to see outstanding issues:

$ rpmlint python3-opengl-3.0.2-1.1.src.rpm 
python3-opengl.src: W: non-standard-group Development/Libraries/Python
python3-opengl.src: W: invalid-license BSD-3-Clause
python3-opengl.src:42: W: macro-in-comment %{py_requires}
python3-opengl.src:47: W: macro-in-comment %else
python3-opengl.src:49: W: macro-in-comment %endif
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 5 warnings.

1) non-standard-group

Use a valid group from /usr/share/doc/rpm/GROUPS

2) invalid-license

You should use the appropriate License tag from the following list:

3) macro-in-comment

$ rpmlint -I macro-in-comment
There is a unescaped macro after a shell style comment in the specfile. Macros
are expanded everywhere, so check if it can cause a problem in this case and
escape the macro with another leading % if appropriate.

I also see some opensuse macros that don't need to be there.

4) Python Packaging Guidelines

We have a great page on the guidelines for python packages. Please use the appropriate macros:

5) I assume you don't plan to build this for EL6, so please remove any redundant macros:


6) Please use an appropriate changelog format.


7) The PyOpenGL package has the Tk widget support put into a subpackage. Have you considered the same?

8) Consider using DistTag in the Release tag:


9) Why does the Release tag start at 1.1? Probably should just be 1.

It's better to create it in one package, yes pyopengl has received the request.
