Description Björn 'besser82' Esser 2019-07-17 12:38:11 UTC

  PTXdist is a build system for firmware images.  It is developed
  by an Open Source Community including Pengutronix since 2001.
  The configuration system Kconfig, known from the Linux kernel,
  is used to select and configure each package.  The collection
  of recipes is based on GNU Make and Bash.


  fedora-review shows no obvious issues.
  rpmlint rants about some (needed, but empty or hidden) files.

 - Use macros

Source0:        https://public.pengutronix.de/software/ptxdist/ptxdist-%{version}.tar.bz2

 - BuildRequires:  python2-devel

Python 2 is now obsoleted, you need an FPC exception to depend on it.

Fixed.  I overlooked to change that before I uploaded the package.

If you refer to this [1], I suppose it will be needed for fc32+.  I cannot find any guideline that enforces an exception during the current development cycle.  Anyways, I've filed a ticket [2] with FESCo for such an exception.

Comment 4 Miro Hrončok 2019-07-18 06:40:47 UTC
There is no python27-devel, just python27.

You need an exception to package something for Python 2 since Fedora 30, because it is already against the guidelines: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/Python/

You *also* need an exception to keep the package in Fedora 32 once it is branched because of Python 2 retirement: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RetirePython2#FESCo_exceptions
