For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix ara at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
ara will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
ara will be retired, if it still fails to build.

*** Bug 1595411 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
David, I intent to start a nonresponsive maintainer procedure since this was ignored for a month (incl. the duplicate bz). Let me know if I shall not.
(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.
This is another friendly reminder.
Please take action.
Note that I requested an approval from FESCo to retire leaf packages that still require Python 3.6 at beta freeze and their bugs are in NEW state. (This package might not necessarily be leaf at this moment, but I'm updating all the bugs in case the dependencies change in the meantime.)

Another bulk reminder. Please take action. Your package doesn't install on Fedora 29. Fix it or retire it.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.
Do something now! (This is the unfriendly reminder.)
I apologize if my unfriendly reminder was too harsh. It was intended to be stronger than the previous friendly reminders, not to hurt anyone.
That said, this still needs to be taken care of.
Leaf packages that still require Python 3.6 one week before Fedora 29 Beta Freeze () and their FTBFS bug remains in NEW state, will be mass retired. Packages marked as blocked by non-FTBFS bug are excluded from this. 
Since the deadline is tomorrow and that David is quite busy with other things, I'm taking over this ticket too.
Any news on ara?
@Miro, I've tagged a new versions of ARA this week (0.16.0 and 0.16.1) which contains the fixes for py37.
Sorry for lacking on the maintenance, I'm the author of ARA and I was hoping to release a major refactor which would have an impact on the packaging -- the major refactor is now >1yr in the making :(
I'll address the situation now.
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 29-beta by Fedora user churchyard using the blocker tracking app because:
Old version blocks update to Fedora 29, requires Python 3.6.
Discussed at 2018-09-10 freeze exception review meeting: https://meetbot-raw.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2018-09-10/f29-blocker-review.2018-09-10-16.01.html . Accepted (under the block vote at the end of the meeting) as a freeze exception issue as this can prevent upgrades working without the potentially-dangerous --allowerasing , and upgrades typically run without updates-testing so there is a benefit to pushing this stable for folks trying to upgrade at present.
I'm still working on this...
There was a lot of catching up to do but that's my fault:
- ARA 0.14.6 -> 0.16.1
- Ansible 188.8.131.52 -> Ansible 2.6.4
Scratch build for f28: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=29608533
Scratch build for f29: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=29608573
I'll be committing and pushing changes up for a build ASAP.
Candidate build for f29: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=29609339
I need to do a bit more testing before tagging it, it'll wait until at least tomorrow.
ara-0.16.1-2.fc29 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 29. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-c749bffdfa
@Miro, @Haikel, package in f29 is tagged pending-testing  and it's built in rawhide .
I'll work on f28 soon but my understanding is that this should be unblocked now, please let me know if I am mistaken.
