Description David H. Gutteridge 2015-12-17 13:15:01 EST
Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3
package for Fedora.

According to the Python packaging guidelines [0], 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 [1].

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'.

Hello Dwayne,

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

Hi Dwayne,
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).

Hello, Dominiko.

Your patch looks good to me but it needs to be modified because it contains changelog entry from Fedora Release Engineering.

Now the patch looks good to me, thanks. If maintainer has nothing against, we can push this change after a week.
