Upstream, this software supports Python 3 starting version 2.0.
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!
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 updates the package to 3.0.2 version, switching to Python 3:
Please, may I ask to review and rebuild?
can you please apply that update/PR? Every time I upgrade Fedora I get the old dusty Nagstamon 1.0 which does not even run anymore on newer Fedora.
Thanks and regards
There meanwhile is a pre-version of 3.1 that ships as an RPM ready to install on Fedora 28 and 29, with all current libraries.
Please note that Henri Wahl is the author of Nagstamon, and already maintains Fedora-compatible packages on his website. Might there be a chance to work closer together and provide a working version inside Fedora again? As Henri pointed out the old version in Fedora doesn't help at all ...

That pull request is now more than a year old, which suggests that this package is no-longer being maintained. It's perhaps worth pursuing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers. Orphaning the package may cause a new volunteer to step forward, but, if not, it sounds like the existing broken package is worse than no package at all.

It's certainly possible. It requires an interested person (which could be Henri, if he has the time and inclination) to volunteer to become a Fedora package maintainer and to build the packages within Fedora. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers

I am sorry but do not even find time for coding so I would be happy someone else could to the packaging part... :-/
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Please update to Fedora 29, as this is still relevant and needed.
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 30 development cycle.
Changing version to '30.
Ping. Any news here?
I can see a lot of people waiting to get this package updated.
How can I help? Is there still an interested maintainer?
The package was retired in the meantime.
