Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-11-11 01:40:38 EST
Description of problem:
pychess-0.6, the latest version on the Fedora repository, is rather out-of-date,
and does not work out-of-the-box on Fedora 8. 0.6.1 does not work either, and
0.8beta 1 appears to be significantly improved, and might be worth packaging.

Please find included the spec file patch, and some patches for the code:
- a patch to make pychess use distutils' get_path rather than it's current
method, which breaks on 64-bit machines (it returns the arch-specific sitedir
rather than the noarch one)
- a trivial patch to reflect pygtksourceview's module name change

We should probably push both to upstream. Also, would you be interested in
getting a co-maintainer? I find the prospect of a decent lightweight chess
client appealing.

Thanks for this, I'll get to updating the package right away.

I would very much like a co-maintainer. I haven't been able to give pychess the
love it deserves for some time. Do you know which steps need to be taken to get
you in as a co-maintainer? I don't

The documentation is rather lacking about the Package Database at the moment,
alas. I think this is how it works:


I applied for access to the package on different distributions, and the package
owner (you) has to manually approve my requests.
Comment 4 Sindre Pedersen Bjørdal 2007-11-12 14:01:46 EST
Approved everything, is this it?
Comment 5 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-11-12 16:00:17 EST
Yup. I tried doing 'make tag' and got the error message 'tag already created'
rather than a permission problem, so I should be able to commit changes, request
tags and builds etc.

Closing bug -- build already in F8 (weird, the update system normally closes the
bug report automatically unless the checkbox is ticked off)
