Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 375551
Update request: pychess-0.8beta1
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:21 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pychess-0.6, the latest version on the Fedora repository, is rather out-of-date,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

Changes to pychess for 0.8beta1
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.
Approved everything, is this it?
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)
