Description Miro Hrončok 2019-08-04 07:59:27 UTC
In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal [0], the following (sub)packages of python-enchant were marked for removal:

 * python2-enchant

According to our query, those (sub)packages only provide a Python 2 importable module. If this is not true, please tell us why, so we can fix our query.

Please remove them from your package in Rawhide (Fedora 31).

Please don't do this for Fedora 30, removing packages from a released Fedora branch is forbidden.

As said in the change document, if there is no objection in a week, we will remove the package(s) as soon as we get to it. This change might not match your packaging style, so we'd prefer if you did the change. If you need more time, please let us know here.

If you do the change yourself, it would help us a lot by reducing the amount of packages we need to mass change.

We hope this doesn't come to you as a surprise. If you want to know our motivation for this, please read the change document [0].

Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-04 08:10:25 UTC
Apparently, writetype requires python-enchant and that used to be provided by python2-enchant but is no more.

Let's fix writetype first.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-09 17:48:09 UTC
writetype was retired.

python-enchant is still required by cherrytree - bz1737224

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.

Both python2-enchant and python2-appindicator are leaf packages and might be removed at any time.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-14 08:47:23 UTC
Technically, this is correct, but see bz1737224.

cherrytree-0:0.38.5-5.fc30.noarch requires python-enchant and python-appindicator - neither of witch is provided by the python2-... package, but it used to be. I'm giving cherrytree time to respond before we rip off the dependencies.

Good to go.
