Description Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2020-10-13 21:56:51 UTC
According to upstream realease notes, this port should work just fine with Python 3.

This port was restricted to Python 2.7 because its dependencies were lacking Python 3 support at that time (see https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=219322).

We should test this port a bit and enable Python 3 if possible.

New revision: 552286
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/552286

Log:
  Give this port a bit more time to switch to Python 3

  We just have to adjust the build process and do some tests, as Python 3 is
  supported according to upstream.

Test-building net/py-avahi 0.7 with USES=python instead of USES=python:2.7 on a 12.2-amd64 poudriere jail.

(In reply to Rene Ladan from comment #2)
Just with this change it fails to configure, claiming that it cannot find py-gdbm even though that is pre-installed as a dependency.
