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 .
Since users aren't expected to import this tool from Python code,
you can just switch to /usr/bin/python3. Alternatively, if you want or
need to keep a Python 2 version, the current best practice is to provide
subpackages -- this is called "Common SRPM" in the guidelines.
It's OK to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 25 as well.
If you need more instructions, a guide for porting Python-based RPMs is
available at .
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!
The support for python3 was a bit iffy, but chances are it's much better now.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.
I have created a Pagure PR which includes the new version 1.13.1 and uses Python 3:
May I ask you to review the PR, and if the patch is fine, to rebuild the package?
