pybluez fails to build with Python 3.10.0a2.
bluez/btmodule.c:2837:22: error: lvalue required as left operand of assignment
2837 | Py_TYPE(&sock_type) = &PyType_Type;
bluez/btmodule.c:2838:29: error: lvalue required as left operand of assignment
2838 | Py_TYPE(&sdp_session_type) = &PyType_Type;
Since Py_TYPE() is changed to the inline static function, Py_TYPE(obj) = new_type must be replaced with Py_SET_TYPE(obj, new_type): see Py_SET_TYPE() (available since Python 3.9). For backward compatibility, this macro can be used:
#if PY_VERSION_HEX < 0x030900A4
# define Py_SET_TYPE(obj, type) ((Py_TYPE(obj) = (type)), (void)0)

For all our attempts to build pybluez with Python 3.10, see:
Testing and mass rebuild of packages is happening in copr. You can follow these instructions to test locally in mock if your package builds with Python 3.10:
Let us know here if you have any questions.
Python 3.10 will be included in Fedora 35. To make that update smoother, we're building Fedora packages with early pre-releases of Python 3.10.
A build failure prevents us from testing all dependent packages (transitive [Build]Requires), so if this package is required a lot, it's important for us to get it fixed soon.
We'd appreciate help from the people who know this package best, but if you don't want to work on this now, let us know so we can try to work around it on our side.
Patch sent upstream.
JFYI The change was reverted in Python 3.10, because it caused too much trouble (the amount of affected Fedora packages was too big).
This comment is mass posted in all relevant bugzillas. If you already worked upstream to fix the problem, you might want to let them know about the revert, but the new way of doing things also works.
Sorry for the trouble and thanks again for the fix.
