Force python2.7

rdiff-backup does not build with python 3.5 so force it to 2.7 so you can build the ports tree with DEFAULT_VERSIONS python=3.5
Comment 1 Zsolt Udvari 2017-03-21 10:39:58 UTC
You've right, thanks!
Comment 2 Zsolt Udvari 2017-03-21 11:14:03 UTC
Maybe the "python:2" is enough, I think.

Force python2

Changing to only require python 2.* instead of forcing 2.7
Comment 4 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2017-04-07 06:41:13 UTC
python:2 means depend on the lang/python2 port, specifically and only for the python2 (and other suffixed) symlinks. It does not mean 'depend on any 2.x version of Python'.

If rdiff-backup supports (upstream codes for, works and is tested with) 2.6 and 2.7, then '-2.7' is the most correct (precise without being incorrect).

If rdiff-backup only supports (upstream codes for, works and is tested with) 2.7, then =2.7 is the most correct.

Also, the summary for this issue appears in contradiction with comment 0. The summary states the change proposed is *allowing* building with 3.5, whereas the patch (and comment 0) changes the port to only build with 2.7 because 3.x does *not* work.

The issue summary needs to be updated to match whatever the proposed changeset (patch) does.

Limit to building with Python 2.x
Comment 6 Daniel Ylitalo 2017-04-07 07:42:35 UTC
It supports 2.2 <-> 2.7 so going with python:-2.7
Comment 7 Zsolt Udvari 2017-04-11 15:10:20 UTC
Yes, rdiff-backup works well with python2.6 and python2.7 too. So I think the '-2.7' is a good choice.

Sorry for late.
