Description Adam Williamson 2016-02-16 20:53:06 EST
I may be missing something, but why does python3-funcsigs exist at all for Fedora?

funcsigs is described thus:

"funcsigs is a backport of the PEP 362 function signature features from Python 3.3’s inspect module."

All supported Fedora releases have at least Python 3.3, so what is the point of building python3-funcsigs? Surely only python2-funcsigs should be produced?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

@Adam: sorry for the late notice, the only point for python3 package is for python2/3 portability reasons. The new signature API is available under the funcsigs module, and not inspect in python2. So it serves to avoid try/catch ImportError logic to import the module.
