Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-04-01 16:29:17 UTC
- If this package can be used as a library and installs Python modules (*.so or *.py) into site-packages directories, then consider supporting installation for multiple Python versions. Please read section "Types of packages" in documentation  to decide if this package can support installation for multiple Python versions. - Ensure that the ebuilds do not use deprecated functions or variables. - Please check if Python 3 is supported by this package. You can temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python to properly test if this package supports Python 3. - 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. Please read section "Specification of dependency on Python" in documentation . - 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 read section "Shebangs in installed scripts" in documentation . - To ensure that changes applied to the ebuilds are sufficient, please temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python and test if this package can be properly installed and if it works at run time. Please see documentation  for more details.  http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/Python/developersguide.xml
Comment 1 Ai Locke Shinseiko (Wizzleby) 2010-04-16 12:43:19 UTC
While this package seems substantially buggy for me regardless, I have been unable to notice any bugs exclusive to running with python 3 set as the system python interpreter. Can anyone else confirm this?
Comment 2 Ai Locke Shinseiko (Wizzleby) 2010-04-16 12:44:22 UTC
merging also succeeds with python3 as system python.
Comment 3 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) 2010-04-19 19:46:17 UTC
kde-base/lokalize-4.4.2 installs 6 .py files into /usr/share/apps/lokalize/scripts directory. 5 of them don't have shebangs. /usr/share/apps/lokalize/scripts/odf/xliffmerge.py has '#!/usr/bin/env python' shebang and doesn't support Python 3 (AttributeErrors for .has_key() and .itervalues()). At least dependencies should be fixed and python_convert_shebangs() should be called.
Comment 4 Ai Locke Shinseiko (Wizzleby) 2010-04-22 14:45:14 UTC
> At least dependencies should be fixed and python_convert_shebangs() should be > called. So would there be call for patching the 5 .py files which lack shebangs to include proper shebangs as well?
Comment 5 Maciej Mrozowski 2010-05-15 20:37:32 UTC
Added missing kde4-meta_pkg_postinst, moved 'convert shebangs' to src_install and moved ebuild to tree. Thanks!
