Description Iryna Shcherbina 2017-05-22 09:55:05 UTC
Upstream, this software supports Python 3. Please provide a Python 3
package for Fedora.

The spec file has already been updated to add a Python 3 subpackage,
but it is not enabled for now [0]. It that is intended, could you please
let us know the reason it is disabled, so that we know the status of this

According to the Python packaging guidelines [1], 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 [2].

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 [3].
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!

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