Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-18 02:50:20 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.

ebuild patch

usr/bin/ only suppprts python{2.6 2.7}.  You might want to change the option for not python{2.6 2.7}
Comment 3 Christoph Junghans (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-03 18:04:58 UTC
In bug #339079. there seems to be a problem with python-2.6.

So I would make it depend on  python-2.7+ and hope it will not break with 2.8.

Great! So it is 2.7 only. I will push a update in 3.0-r2 (will fix #411083 as well) together with a fix to ignore egit-src in distfiles and the fix from bug #362697.

Any strong opinions against it?
Comment 6 Christoph Junghans (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-04 01:40:04 UTC
Added 3.0-r3 to the tree.
