Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965862
Last modified: 2016-01-04 09:45:49 EST
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:
@@ -86,8 +117,8 @@
default timezone specified in default_timezone is used. This is UTC by
- if not isinstance(datestring, basestring):
- raise ParseError("Expecting a string %r" % datestring)
+ if not isinstance(datestring, bytes):

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

Steps to Reproduce:
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.
Pádraig, has there been any upstream movement on this? Thanks.
Status update, please?
Sorry, yes the patch has been merged upstream in the meantime.
I'll update the f20 package to add python3 support
python-iso8601-0.1.10-2.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
Fantastic. Thanks a lot, Pádraig.
