Hello Python package maintainers.
You might know that we are trying to rebuild the Python packages with Python 3.8.

As is usual with such Python upgrades, packages that parse the AST are imacted
by the changes the most and they need a while to adapt. As a result, pylint is
not yet ready for Python 3.8. Similar situation happened during the upgrade to
I'd like to kindly ask you to stop buildrequiring and running pylint in Fedora
RPM's %check (or similar), unless your package has a runtime dependency on it.
Pylint is an excellent tool and I appreciate that you care for code quality,
however I don't think this is the purpose of %check.
Let me know if you'd like my help with depylinting your %checks.
The following packages BR python3-pylint (I've removed pocketlint and
setuptools-lint where I suspect more complicated dependency reasons):
