Description Lumír Balhar 2022-11-11 13:02:02 UTC
I'm testing an update to pytest 7.2.0 and I've discovered a problem with this package.

This package needs python3-setuptools to build but this dependency is not specified as a BuildRequires in its specfile.

This fact didn't cause any trouble before because python3-pytest <7.2 depends on python3-setuptools so setuptools have been installed as a transitive dependency. pytest uses a different build backend now which means that when we update it to the latest version, this package will fail to build.

The plan is to update pytest in ~2 weeks.

If you want to, you can find the failed build in https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/lbalhar/pytest/
