Description Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 17:01:04 UTC
Description of problem:
execnet currently fails to build from source in Rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. fedpkg clone python-execnet
2. cd python-execnet
2. fedpkg mockbuild

Actual results:
The package fails to build

Expected results:
The package builds successfully for Rawhide

Additional info:
The first problem is that the package tries to build the docs with Sphinx on Python 2. /usr/bin/sphinx-build-2 is no longer available in Rawhide:

However, even after removing the Sphinx parts of the package build entirely, the package still fails to pass the test suite on Python 2 or 3. We need this commit from upstream:

Comment 1 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 17:10:50 UTC
I've had to disable Sphinx on both Python 2 and Python 3 for now. Here's the error I'm getting with py3:

Comment 2 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 19:04:48 UTC
Here's my update, if you want to review before I push to master:

Comment 3 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 20:22:41 UTC
When I comment out these lines in , I can build the execnet docs with python3-sphinx-2.0.0~b1-1.fc31:

html_sidebars = {
    'index': 'indexsidebar.html',

Comment 4 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 20:24:56 UTC has a clue:

"Deprecated since version 1.7: a single string value for html_sidebars will be removed in 2.0"

When I change that to a list, it works:

html_sidebars = {
    'index': ['indexsidebar.html'],

Comment 5 Ken Dreyer (Red Hat) 2019-03-18 20:53:36 UTC
I've pushed this change upstream at
