Subject: native python recipes using setuptools

Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm a bit puzzled at the moment - after 
fd6a007efa7cb45101a66f294af81d9d33bb3fab in meta-openembedded I faced a 
lot of changes in the behavior of native-only recipes (@RP yes the ones 
that don't use BBCLASSEXTEND :-))

after this change I had a couple of dependency loops like

python3-my-recipe-native > python3 > ... > python3-my-recipe-native

and I could track it down to distutils3-base.bbclass [1].
There for all recipes no matter what the set (I guess BBCLASSEXTEND 
magic will solves that in the end) "python3-native python3" is set in 

My question is, is that intended behavior or would it make sense to be 
more explicit here, like

DEPENDS += "python3-native"
DEPENDS_class-target += "python3"


Mainly this happens when a globally inherited class requests a native 
python3 package via DEPENDS (a not too uncommon use case for me).
