sympy: please package python 3 version
Last modified: 2013-11-10 02:32:17 EST
Description of problem:
sympy is one of the few missing pieces of "scientific python" functionality in fedora with python 3.3. It'd be great if sympy could be packaged.
This can't be done yet. First, python3-mpmath doesn't exist. That is absolutely required.
Second, python3-pyglet doesn't exist. It *may* be possible to get away without that one, but it will lead to reduced functionality. Furthermore, the pyglet maintainer has already stated that the current version can't be built for python3, but that upstream is working on it. See bug 868266.
Once those two packages have python3 versions, I will happily build a python3 version of sympy.
I had a look at the mpmath situation. It seems that mpmath-0.17 from
http://code.google.com/p/mpmath/ works fine with Python3.2. With Python3.3 there's one test failure, related to hashing. Without looking into it, it'd guess that this related to the randomized hashing changes in 3.3. The repository on code.g.c seems dead, but https://github.com/fredrik-johansson/mpmath seems alive. Bugging mpmath in 987572.
python3-pyglet is in testing: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/python-pyglet-1.2-0.7.alpha1.fc20.
I'm also pushin python3-pyglet to f19: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/python-pyglet-1.2-0.7.alpha1.fc19
Great, thanks Petr. I tried to build the python3 version of sympy for Rawhide, and the tests failed with some kind of Unicode error. Looking into it...
Got the Unicode error sorted out, and there is now a python3-sympy subpackage in Rawhide. Will build it for F-20 next.
