python-flickrapi: Provide a Python 3 subpackage
Last modified: 2017-04-06 04:00:03 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 ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 24 as well.
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!
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.
I have tried make a patch for specfile but the new version (2.1.2) needs packages which are not in Fedora yet:
- requests_toolbelt (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/requests-toolbelt)
- requests_oauthlib (https://github.com/requests/requests-oauthlib)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.

add Python 3 & update version
My mistake, the packages mentioned before are ready. There is a patch.
Maxim, could you please review it and push it?

Add Python 3 support and update to 2.2.1
I have updated Dominika's patch to the latest upstream version (2.2.1). You may find the new patch attached. Please review it and do the update.
Please note that, although this package is built for EPEL 5 and 6 in pkgdb, flickrapi has dropped Python 2.6 support since version 2.0.1, therefore this patch is Fedora only.
