Please build python-pickleshare for EPEL 8, which is a prerequisite for ipython (Bug 1758271). The component is not in Fedora EPEL yet so I am filing the bug against Fedora. Since ipython stopped supporting Python 2.7, I think it's fine to just package the python3 part.
Like I mentioned here - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1762512
I plan to branch and update several of the packages I maintain or co-maintain in about ten days from now.
I will create a pickleshare branch as well at that time unless someone from python-sig does it first.
Sorry for the delay. I have been really busy these days. I will endeavor to get this to EPEL8 by the end of this month.
again, ping ... it seems this is the last blocking issue for ipython in epel 8.
Requested a branch. Once approved, I will build it.
Thank you. The link you posted above (https://pagure.io/releng/fedora-scm-requests/issue/21756) reads that the branch already exists.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.
Built on epel8. Can you test?
Thank you. I've never used it separately; it is required merely because ipython depends on it. But I did download and rpm install the epel8 build, and the pickleshare module could be imported in python 3.6.
