Description Jerry James 2013-05-21 16:59:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm working on a package that uses python-iso8601.  This package supposedly works under both python2 and python3, so I would like to make both packages, but there is no python3-iso8601.

It appears that the python-iso8601 upstream has not been active for a few years.  The bug reports are piling up.  Some people have noticed, which is why this fork exists: https://github.com/OpenLearningNet/pyiso8601.  It fixes a few bugs, so it may be worth switching upstreams.  Sadly, the fork doesn't provide python3 support, either.

Issue 23 for the current googlecode upstream has one appraoch.  The package I am working on actually bundles pyiso8601, and takes a simpler approach.  It adds "import sys" at the top, then this a little further down:

if sys.version_info < (3, 0):
    bytes = str

and then does this:

+    if not isinstance(datestring, bytes):
+        raise ParseError("Expecting bytes %r" % datestring)
     m = ISO8601_REGEX.match(datestring)
     if not m:
         raise ParseError("Unable to parse date string %r" % datestring)

Yes adding the diff from python-subunit as a patch to the exising python-iso8601 package makes sense. I know the author and will ask about getting it merged upstream too.
Comment 2 Jerry James 2014-02-13 14:36:12 EST
Pádraig, has there been any upstream movement on this?  Thanks.
Comment 3 Jerry James 2014-04-23 10:34:35 EDT
Status update, please?
Comment 4 Pádraig Brady 2014-04-23 20:22:09 EDT
Sorry, yes the patch has been merged upstream in the meantime.

I'll update the f20 package to add python3 support
