python-meld3: Provide a Python 3 subpackage
Last modified: 2016-04-21 04:12:20 EDT
Upstream (in version 1.0.2), 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
It's fine to do this in Rawhide only.
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.
Current meld3 releases seem to support Python 3 (>= 3.2) nicely, so I don't think I'll need help -- thanks anyway! I'll upgrade the package to 1.0.2 in Rawhide, in which I'll add a subpackage for Python 3.
NB: This probably requires that supervisor is updated, too.
