Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-06-15 19:09:53 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 [1] 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 [1].

  - If this package cannot support installation for multiple versions of
    Python, then set active version of Python using

  - 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 [1].

  - 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 [1] for more details.

Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-19 16:50:41 UTC
changing summary to relevant package. panflute is a rename of music-applet and music-applet will be removed from tree asap.
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2010-12-08 17:44:25 UTC
+  08 Dec 2010; Pacho Ramos <> panflute-0.6.2.ebuild:
+  Let it work when python3 is set as default interpreter.
Comment 5 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-08 20:08:46 UTC
reopening since I planned to add multi-abi support and not just "works with python 3 as main interpreter".
Comment 6 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-12-08 22:46:59 UTC
+  08 Dec 2010; Gilles Dartiguelongue <> panflute-0.6.2.ebuild:
+  Handle multiple ABI python, bug #324173.
