Description Miro Hrončok 2019-11-10 23:22:47 UTC
In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal [0], the following (sub)packages of python-configparser were marked for removal:

 * python2-configparser

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 32).

Please don't remove packages from Fedora 31/30/29, 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 Avram Lubkin 2019-11-11 01:11:43 UTC
The goal was to make this an EPEL-only package, since configparser is a backport and not needed in Python 3

 - Dependency removed, but builds have been failing
 - https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/graphite-web/c/126aef0db2a829d72b80a4679fcbb5342e43bfee?branch=master

 - Only source, explicitly listed as a build dependency
 - #1770630

 - Only source, explicitly listed as a build dependency
 - #1770629

 - Cause by automatic dependency generator and unqualified dependency in upstream
 - #1770622

I suppose it would take a while before this is sorted out.

Let's remove Python 2 now and track this after? As a provenpackager I can help you merge Pull Requests.

graphite-web might be the holdout. A lot of Django packages are broken with 3.0 beta
