Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 19:42:46 UTC
The packages are stuck on py3.6 which means they will be pain once we switch to 3.7.  Please test them on 3.7 *and* 3.8 (so we don't to revisit this in a few months), and update PYTHON_COMPAT appropriately.  If it doesn't work, please either fix it, remove Python or issue last rites.  Please consider this urgent.

ebuild for beets-1.4.9

This is a working ebuild for the current version of beets. It uses python3_7, python3_8 fails because dev-python/jellyfish is not (yet) ready for python3_8.

I think it would be sad if beets would drop out of portage.
Comment 3 Guillaume Seren 2020-04-21 00:09:15 UTC
I use media-sound/beets and would like to help maintain / upgrade the ebuild,
the project is alive and support up to python3.8.

Maybe proxy-maintain this can ease the upgrade.
Comment 4 Guillaume Seren 2020-04-25 21:17:26 UTC
I have been working on this ebuild + 9999,
it has tests and I would like some reviews.
