Description of problem: async is a keyword in Python 3.7. python-trollius FTBFS now:
Bytecompiling .py files below /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/python-trollius-2.1-9.fc29.noarch/usr/lib/python3.7 using /usr/bin/python3.7
*** Error compiling '/builddir/build/BUILDROOT/python-trollius-2.1-9.fc29.noarch/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/trollius/tasks.py'...

def async(coro_or_future, loop=None):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): python-trollius-2.1-9.fc29
Build in the 3.7 side tag (to test and also when fixed):
fedpkg build --target=f29-python
This is blocking other packages.
trollius is py2 only I believe, if it's being built for py3 that's a mistake.
My bad, it seems it also supported up to python 3.5, but it's deprecated upstream and imho its interest lay mostly in py2, on py3 asyncio is the way to go :)
$ dnf repoquery --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo='rawhide-source' --whatrequires python3-trollius
Upstream also clearly mentions up to 3.5: https://pypi.org/project/trollius_redis/
Upstream only mentions up to 3.5 as well: https://pypi.org/project/ZEO/
but more interestingly, trollius is only a dependency on ZEO on 2.7: https://github.com/zopefoundation/ZEO/blob/master/setup.py#L137
Same here, trollius is only a dependency on py2: https://github.com/qtile/qtile/blob/develop/setup.py#L95
I don't have a clear view for catkin_tools
catkin_tools FTBFS since 28 anyway https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1556160

Clearly, since the release is from 2015.

Removed the BR.

Removed the BR.
The side tag is no more. Once fixed, build in regular rawhide.
trollius has been Retired on Fedora.
I wonder what the dependent packages will do :(
I think it was my mistake to retire the whole project, and it should be restored now. I think we just want to drop the python3 builds, but can leave python2 well enough alone.
Might be worth updating to 2.2 at the same time.
I owe everybody a big apology. I barged in like a bull in a china shop. I hope I didn't make too big a mess of things.
I've been out of town, and a bunch of my packages failed the mass rebuild while I was gone. I'm back for a couple of days before leaving again, so I am hurriedly trying to fix as many build failures as I can while I'm here. I was in too big a hurry, obviously. I saw that python-ZEO failed the mass rebuild because trollius was not available. I saw that it had been unretired, but there was no build. And I saw that the last build attempt failed due to async being used as a function name. So I added a patch to fix the async bug for python 3, fired off a build ... then read this bug.
If you want to throw rocks or overripe tomatoes at me, get in touch and I'll give you a physical location where that can be done.
(This is a mass bug update. Forgive me if things are not 100% accurate for this one.)
At this moment, your package still requires Python 3.6. This will cause broken upgrades to Fedora 29. Please prioritize this rebuild.
Let me know if you need help from the Python maintenance team figuring out why the package FTBFS.
Consider orphaning the package if you don't have time for it.
Consider retiring the package if upstream is dead and nothing depends on it in Fedora.
If you are blocked by other packages (I've recently tried to set the Bugzilla metadata to reflect that), consider helping there as well. Thank you.
