Description Emmanuel Rosa 2012-09-16 21:30:25 UTC
When running /usr/share/mercurial-server/refresh-auth under the hg account the following error occurs:

$ /usr/share/mercurial-server/refresh-auth
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/mercurial-server/refresh-auth", line 8, in <module>
    from mercurialserver import refreshauth, config
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/mercurialserver/", line 10, in <module>
    from mercurialserver import config
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/mercurialserver/", line 34
    except Exception, e:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I think the problem is mercurial-server installed under Python 3.x, which has a different syntax for exception handling.


I checked the ebuild and it defines PYTHON_DEPEND="2" but it's missing RESTRICT_PYTHON_ABIS="3.*.

Ebuild with a fix to not install into Python 3.x. I tried it and it worked.

This is being handled as part of distutils-r1 conversion.
