I think it depends on how much work fixing them is. If it were just five
minutes then I'd say leave it in master and fix the packages that failed.
However, Hartmut, I think that Build 1637640 is not even done building all the
packages yet (1853 packages are pending; and some "python-" packages are in the
queue), so it's anyone's guess which packages are affected.
As for the Python-requiring packages (which do or don't have "python" in the
name), the failing ones I can spot are:
- borg (can't import borg)
- calibre ("list index out of range" in setup.py)
- kicad (because of python2-wxpython failure "option
--single-version-externally-managed not recognized")
- python2-wxpython ("option --single-version-externally-managed not recognized")
- python-sympy (testing fails because some tests that were supposed to fail
- python-ipython (Can't find "docs/build/texinfo/ipython.info")
- python2-beautifulsoup4 (Tries to use "python3" in convert-py3k - why? After
all it's supposed to use Python 2)
There are others.
On the other hand, many Python packages that failed building before now are
In any case I think the new Python build-system is an improvement and I can
help fix some of those packages. Just don't merge when it's not even done
building them yet :P
