python-cli: Provide a Python 3 subpackage
Last modified: 2017-02-27 10:43:26 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
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!
Marek, do you need any help with packaging for Python 3?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
Unfortunately upstream does not really support Python3.6. The fix is proposed via pull-request (pls note, that upstream has moved to https://github.com/geertj/python-cli)
I wanted to say not 3.6, but even current fedora Python3.5.2
Upstream owner has discontinued project (see https://github.com/geertj/python-cli/pull/3#issuecomment-282409089)
