Description Mikolaj Izdebski 2019-04-24 06:06:46 UTC
Description of problem:
Module javapackages-tools, stream 201801 does not install on platform:f31

Steps to Reproduce:
1. odcs create module javapackages-tools:201801
2. curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/odcs-252.repo https://odcs.fedoraproject.org/composes/latest-odcs-252-1/compose/Temporary/odcs-252.repo
3. dnf module enable javapackages-tools:201801
4. dnf install maven-local

Actual results:
 Problem: package maven-local-5.3.0-3.module_f28+3695+340f1066.noarch requires javapackages-local = 5.3.0-3.module_f28+3695+340f1066, but none of the providers can be installed
  - package javapackages-local-5.3.0-3.module_f28+3695+340f1066.noarch requires python3-javapackages = 5.3.0-3.module_f28+3695+340f1066, but none of the providers can be installed
  - conflicting requests
  - nothing provides python(abi) = 3.6 needed by python3-javapackages-5.3.0-3.module_f28+3695+340f1066.noarch

FWIW this prevents me from building Eclipse on F31.

IMO, since javapackages-tools is a "build only" module and users won't normally be installing it on workstations, it's not a big deal if there is no python bytecode shipped in this module. I'm not a python wonk so there could be a better way :-)

Comment 2 Mikolaj Izdebski 2019-04-25 17:31:51 UTC
The current draft plan is to:
- move Python modules out of /usr/lib/python3.X/site-packages/ to a private location somewhere under /usr/share/
- do not bytecompile the modules so that they keep working with any Python 3 minor version
- implement basic tests for javapackages-tools module that will make sure that the module is installable on all platforms (bug #1684621)

But I need to confirm what are Fedora rules for Python bytecode generation and for installing Python modules in non-standard locations - I don't want to violate any packaging guidelines.

POST-ed for testing in MBI.

Comment 4 Mikolaj Izdebski 2019-04-26 00:14:53 UTC
This should be fixed in the latest javapackages-tools module, stream 201801.
