Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-03-07 17:52:32 UTC
- If this package could support installation for multiple versions of Python, then please try to adjust the ebuilds to support it. - Ensure that the ebuilds do not use deprecated functions or variables. - Please check if Python 3 is supported by this package. - If this package does not support Python 3: - Specify dependency on Python 2. You can use PYTHON_DEPEND helper variable, which should be set before inheriting of python eclass. - If this package cannot support installation for multiple versions of Python, then set active version of Python using python_set_active_version(). - Ensure that shebangs in installed scripts specify correct version of Python. If shebangs are too generic (e.g. '#!/usr/bin/python'), then you can use python_convert_shebangs() to convert shebangs. (Wrapper scripts generated by python_generate_wrapper_scripts() do not require any changes.) Please see documentation  for more details.  http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/Python/developersguide.xml

Thanks. It might be helpful to put a list like this at the beginning of the documentation; a list of steps to take, or things to check, if your package does and doesn't support multiple versions. I had a little trouble telling if some things i was reading applied to the package I was working on.

- moved PYTHON_DEPEND before inherit. - call python_set_active_version 2 - fixed shebangs this package (and any wxpython package for that matter) is not compatible with python-3.
