python-Levenshtein: please provide a Python 3 package
Last modified: 2016-11-16 10:57:51 EST
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
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!
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Do you need any help adding Python 3 support to the RPM?
If you need more instructions, a [guide] for porting Python-based RPMs is available.

add Python 3 & version update
here is the change needed to add Python 3 support and update the version. Could you please review it and do the update?
Koji scratch build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=15427465
Also tested in Mock (fedora-23-x86_64, fedora-24-x86_64, fedora-25-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-x86_64, fedora-rawhide-i386).
Your patch looks good to me but it needs to be modified because it contains changelog entry from Fedora Release Engineering.

Hi Lumír, thanks for the review. There is a fixed patch. :)
Now the patch looks good to me, thanks. If maintainer has nothing against, we can push this change after a week.
Any progress on this?
Fixed for rawhide, please reopen the bug if you require it for F25.
