Might be worth it to ask them to check if it builds officially with the latest swig if possible (or submit them the patch here), that would help everyone in the long run for the python 3 compatibility as python 2 death is not that far by now.

The nice INRIA guys got back to me and made the SVN public again. I had to make one update but the package is building again and a spams.lasso call is working for me in Python. You might want to give it a try.

I tried manually building the latest version (2.5 svn 2014-04-07) with Py3 (download the tarball and python build_ext --inplace); currently the result is not importable (ImportError: /tmp/makepkg/python-spams/src/spams-python/ undefined symbol: _Py_ZeroStruct)

(_Py_ZeroStruct disappeared at the same time as the 2->3 transition.)

Any ideas? Do you know if some changes (unavailable to the public, right now) between 2014-04-07 and 2014-12-21 fixed this?

The upstream folks at INRIA made the SVN private. I messaged them a while back to see if it could be switched back to public but it couldn't be switched back then. I will reach out again.

This currently fails to fetch the sources:

The build failed.

Python tests not yet upgraded for Python 3. Build works fine and I checked the spams.lasso call from Python.
