SyntaxError: build.py @def copy_resources

Reported by Bill McGonigle | May 13th, 2013 @ 03:17 PM

I'm trying to build dupeguru-me on Fedora 17. The pre-requisites are installed, source checked out via hg, but when I get to the build.py step, I get:

$ python build.py --clean Traceback (most recent call last):
File "build.py", line 20, in from hscommon import sphinxgen File "/home/flowerpt/src/dupeguru/dupeguru-me/dupeguru-me/hscommon/sphinxgen.py", line 12, in from .build import print_and_do, read_changelog_file, filereplace File "/home/flowerpt/src/dupeguru/dupeguru-me/dupeguru-me/hscommon/build.py", line 290 def copy_resources(self, *resources, use_symlinks=False): ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax

confirming by hand:

$ python -m py_compile /home/flowerpt/src/dupeguru/dupeguru-me/dupeguru-me/hscommon/build.py

SyntaxError: ('invalid syntax', ('/home/flowerpt/src/dupeguru/dupeguru-me/dupeguru-me/hscommon/build.py', 290, 53, ' def copy_resources(self, *resources, use_symlinks=False):\n'))

Python version is:


I looked at the function definition syntax BNF python.org, and I don't see the obvious problem, but I'm definitely not a python hacker.
