Description Iryna Shcherbina 2017-03-15 17:02:13 UTC
The Python 3 subpackage  python3-rosinstall is missing executables available in the Python 2 subpackage.

According to the Fedora Packaging guidelines for Python [0], if a Python package that supports Python 3 installs executables into /usr/bin,  then either both Python versions of the executables should be packaged, or only the Python 3 version, depending on the functionality they provide.
(Note the "should": having Python 2-only executables is permitted, but strongly discouraged.)

Is it intentional for this particular package?

In case it is not intentional, please provide a Python 3 version of executable, or you can just switch to Python 3 if the functionality is the same regardless of the Python version. The guide for porting Python-based RPMs is available here [1] and you may refer to it for more instructions.

It's ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 26 as well.

If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance, you can
ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy
to help investigating or fixing the issue!

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.

I created a Pagure PR that fixes the missing Python 3 version of executables:


May I ask to review and make the new package?

Hello Rich, please, may I ask for your feedback?

Comment 4 Miro Hrončok 2017-10-12 13:25:16 UTC
I don't know what rosinstall is, but is there a user facing difference between the Python 2 and Python 3 executables? Because if it isn't, the Python 2 executables should go away.

Hi Miro, thanks for the review. I have updated the patch according to your comments in Pagure PR: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-rosinstall/pull-request/2

Hello Rich,

please could you review Pagure PR [1] which fixes the missing Python 3 version of executables issue, and rebuild the package?
