Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-03-25 06:47:41 UTC
The package has:

  PYTHON_COMPAT=( python3_{6,7} )

and at the same time:

  dev-python/pyzmq[python_targets_python2_7]

This makes no sense as a py3 package obviously won't use py2.7 module.  I have no clue what the author meant here but I have serious reasons to doubt his ebuild skills.

This meaningless dep is also silently blocking me from proceeding with major twisted cleanup.

@qa, how to proceed?

The real fun part is that upstream README.md states:

sudo apt-get install [...] python3-zmq [...]
