python-ceilometerclient: Provide a Python 3 subpackage
Last modified: 2016-07-26 00:27:55 EDT
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
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!
Jakub, do you need any help with switching to Python 3?
I plan to provide all python-*client py3 subpackages next week(s).
Hi Jakub, that will be greatly appreciated!
If you'd like some information on the porting process, there is a Python RPM Porting Guide available:
Sorry for the delay, I insisted on testing in RDO trunk first which took me some time to get hang of.
Here is my first attempt: http://review.rdoproject.org/r/1305
Please feel free to comment on the review, github account is used. Once this review is merged and tested, I'll use it as a template to port all the other *client libraries and sync to Fedora once it looks working.
Absolutely don't worry about the delay, we are grateful you're taking the time.
I commented on the review, so feel free to contact me with any questions!
Have a great day!
Thanks for your reviews, python2-ceilometerclient-2.3.0-3.fc25 is now in rawhide with py3 support.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
