Description Petr Viktorin 2022-02-01 09:44:35 UTC
Python 2.7 reached end-of-life in January 2020, over 9 years after it was released. The python27 package is now deprecated in Fedora, but votca requires it.
Most likely this is due to the shebang in votca-2022/csg-tutorials/spce/ibi_espressopp/spce.py

Please remove the dependency on Python 2, or apply for a FESCo exception -- see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RetirePython2#FESCo_exceptions
I can help port the script to Python 3 if you give me some instructions on how to test it -- it looks simple, but unfortunately I have no idea what it's for.

If something is unclear, please mention it here.

$ dnf repoquery --repo=rawhide --requires votca-csg-tutorials
votca = 2022-1.fc36

We don't have a package for Espresso++ yet in Fedora, so I will just remove that tutorial for now.
