Patch to provide Python 3 tests subpackage (1.96 KB, patch)

Description Tomas Orsava 2016-05-10 14:32:33 UTC
Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3
package for Fedora.

According to the Python packaging guidelines [0], 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 [1].

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 you need more instructions, a guide for porting Python-based RPMs is
available at [2].
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!

Hi Charalampos!

I checked the patch and it looks correct! I also tried installing it in mock and it looks good, I think we can push it!

Hi Alan!
as this is a bit of a time sensitive issue, we would really appreciate if you could take a look at the patch as soon as possible.
If you are time constrained right now, I hope you won't mind if we do the review and push the changes ourselves in case you won't respond.

Thank you!

Also tested in mock and works as expected.
