Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-04-19 23:33:24 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.

*geos-3.2.0-r1 (26 Jun 2010)

  26 Jun 2010; Justin Lecher <> +files/3.2.0-multipy.patch,
  geos-3.1.1.ebuild, geos-3.2.0.ebuild, +geos-3.2.0-r1.ebuild:
  Fix for Python ABIs, #316221; corrected HOMEPAGE

I have fixed dependencies, RESTRICT_PYTHON_ABIS and pkg_setup().

The following code in macros/ac_python_devel.m4 is slow and stupid:
        # Check for Python library path
        AC_MSG_CHECKING([for Python library path])
        for i in "$base_python_path/lib/python$PYTHON_VERSION/config/" "$base_python_path/lib/python$PYTHON_VERSION/" "$base_python_path/lib/python/config/" "$base_python_path/lib/python/" "$base_python_path/" "$base_python_path/libs/" ; do
                python_path=`find $i -name libpython$PYTHON_VERSION.* -print 2> /dev/null | sed "1q"`
                if test -n "$python_path" ; then

I'm leaving this bug open for fixing of detection of Python library path.
