Description Carl George 🤠 2021-04-22 22:07:57 UTC
Description of problem:
The %pycached macro doesn't work correctly on el7 because it is using {} expansion in %files.  That is a feature that was added in rpm 4.13.0 [0], but el7 is still using rpm 4.11.3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. %pycached %{python3_sitelib}/%{srcname}.py

Actual results:
    File not found by glob: /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/python-appdirs-1.4.4-1.el7.x86_64/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/__pycache__/appdirs.cpython-36{,.opt-?}.pyc

Expected results:
working spec file

Additional info:

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2021-04-23 08:11:41 UTC
%pycached %{python3_sitelib}/%{srcname}.py

Now evals to:


Needs to eval to:



Note to self: EL 8 has RPM 4.14.3.

Thanks for the quick response, that PR looks great to me.  Once it's merged and in testing I'll be happy to confirm one last time and give karma.
