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.

Right now, I don't have the time to work on this bugzilla. If you submit a patch, I'll be glad to review and merge it. Otherwise, I'm quite busy for the next couple of weeks.

dist-git patch to add python3 support
Here is a patch to package python2-ldb and python3-ldb.
It also splits the -devel packages, but keeps the common header separate, in python-ldb-devel-common.
Thank you for the patch, I think the Provides and Obsoletes are correct, so I will just run a local mockbuild and then submit to rawhide.
