I still have heard nothing from the main python maintainers, and I'd like to
get some kind of an ack for the following plan:
- Dropping the python3-pkgversion-macros package, replaced with
python-srpm-macros from above and required by redhat-rpm-config (in Fedora)
and epel-rpm-macros (in EPEL).
- Dropping the python-macros sub-package from python, replace by Requires:
python-rpm-macros from above package. python3 requires this as well.
- Dropping macros.python2 from python-devel, replaced with Requires:
python2-rpm-macros from above package.
- Dropping macros.python3 from python3-devel, replaced with Requires:
python3-rpm-macros from above package.
This achieves the goal of decoupling modifying/updating the python macros
updating the main python package, which has become a serious hindrance to
developing new python rpm macros.
The reviewed package contains the Fedora macros. macros will be changed on
the EPEL branches.
Sorry for the late response -- extended vacation. :)
We're 100% behind this, it's been something that's been on our todo list for
while now. :)
