Awesome. I was actually just today thinking about creating and playing with a
python3 package. I'll just wait for yours instead.
No packages depending on python 2.x should be
harmed by having py3k
present. Also, there probably won't be any packages depending on py3k yet.
I would, of course, like to package a number of modules against it for my own
use. I have a few of questions, though:
What about the module package naming convention? Should they be of the form
Unless somebody has a better idea, ofcourse. But i can't think of
anything else that would make sense.
Will the python3 package include rpm macros, such as
I didn't look into this yet. Probably not now, but we'll certainly add
Will there be a 'devel:languages:python3'
project, or should Python 3 packages
be placed in 'devel:languages:python'? If the latter, should new python3-*
I'm placing python3 into devel:languages:python
packages be created, or should the existing packages
be modified to generate
both if %suse_version > 1100?
I don't think that it would make any sense. For one, if the rumors are
true, then python2.x packages will need to be rewritten (automatically,
but rewritten nevertheless) to work in python3.
And for two, even if you managed to make one source work on both
pythons, there's still the issue of dependency on python/python3,
package name (python- vs. python3-) and all the little thingies. You
would most likely end up with two unrelated specs for one package... and
at that point you are better off with separate packages.
(if you have any comments, please CC me in the reply, otherwise my
replies will break threads. that is a bug in my way of using the
mailinglist, which is not yet fixed)
