I decided to give Leap a try.

My main use case for production is a python app. The app is in OBS,
but not in Leap. (I may be the only user, so it is not a big loss.)

In trying to get it going I find that python-protobuf is not in
Leap either.

Now that surprises me. python-protobuf has been in openSUSE since
at least 13.1 as a sub-project of protobuf.

The Leap protobuf specfile is at:

Looking at the specfile for protobuf it says:

%if 0%{?suse_version} > 1210 && 0%{?suse_version} != 1315
%bcond_without protobuf_python
%bcond_with protobuf_python

I don't recall coming across bcond before, but that logic seems
totally backwards to me. I gather that the suse_version being 1315
in Leap causes the python binding subproject not to be built.


- if I hard code "%bcond_without protobuf_python" then the python
bindings subproject is built. In plain english, what does
%bcond_without mean?

It adds "--without protobuf_python" argument support to rpmbuild
command line. It does *not* itself affect whether it is built or not
- somewhere else SPEC must check condition (with_protobuf_python in
this case) and behave accordingly.


I did a little digging and it seems Leap should have the python
bindings, but somehow they did not get inserted into the Leap repo. If
you look at the -devel project they are built and published.

So, to get them in the distro a maintenance SR is needed. I do not
maintain that repo, otherwise I'd fix it myself.
