Description Miro Hrončok 2019-08-11 21:24:54 UTC
earcandy-0.9-12.fc31.noarch fails to install in Fedora rawhide:

  nothing provides gnome-python2-gconf needed by earcandy-0.9-12.fc31.noarch

This is most likely caused by a dependency that was retired.
Please drop the dependency or remove the package. Thanks

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

Changing version to 31.

Comment 3 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-19 21:01:51 UTC
In preparation for the Python 2 EOL, we are removing all non-installable Python 2 packages:

This bug is still in the NEW state and the package does not install. Please indicate you are working on a fix by setting the state to ASSIGNED. When this bug is four weeks in the NEW state, the package may be orphaned.

Note that you don't have to actually fix this right now, setting the bug to ASSIGNED will just mark this as being worked on, so I'll know it is being taken care of. If this happens too quickly, feel free to reach to me any time for help (with specific problems).

Thank You!

See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Removing_non-installable_packages_from_the_distro

"Packages still failing to install due to a missing Python 2 dependency will be retired at Beta Freeze, assuming they have a Bugzilla bug open for at least 2 weeks. The package maintainer may postpone this retirement to the Final Freeze by promising to fix it until then."

Let me know if this package shall not be retired yet. The beta freeze is at 2019-08-29, the final freeze is at 2019-10-08.

Comment 5 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-28 11:54:00 UTC
Retired the package in master and f31. Let me know if you want me review it once (if) it is added back.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-30 11:58:01 UTC
Requesting a freeze exception based on https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2216#comment-593925

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2019-08-30 16:23:05 UTC
We don't really need a separate FE for every single package that was supposed to be retired but wasn't due to the freeze. We can just file a single bug to cover this situation, I think. I'm unproposing all the separate retirement bugs.

Comment 8 Miro Hrončok 2019-08-31 07:39:50 UTC
I've verified that the package is gone from the fedora repo. Thanks and sorry for panicking.
