[PATCH v4 00/24] python: create installable package

From: John Snow
Subject: [PATCH v4 00/24] python: create installable package
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 2021 13:58:32 -0500

This series factors the python/qemu directory as an installable
package. It does not yet actually change the mechanics of how any other
python source in the tree actually consumes it (yet), beyond the import
path. (some import statements change in a few places.)

git: https://gitlab.com/jsnow/qemu/-/commits/python-package-mk3
CI: https://gitlab.com/jsnow/qemu/-/pipelines/254940717
(New CI job: https://gitlab.com/jsnow/qemu/-/jobs/1024230604)

The primary motivation of this series is primarily to formalize our
dependencies on mypy, flake8, isort, and pylint alongside versions that
are known to work. It does this using the setup.cfg and setup.py
files. It also adds explicitly pinned versions (using Pipfile.lock) of
these dependencies that should behave in a repeatable and known way for
developers and CI environments both. Lastly, it enables those CI checks
such that we can enforce Python coding quality checks via the CI tests.

An auxiliary motivation is that this package is formatted in such a way
that it COULD be uploaded to https://pypi.org/project/qemu and installed
independently of qemu.git with `pip install qemu`, but that button
remains *unpushed* and this series *will not* cause any such
releases. We have time to debate finer points like API guarantees and
versioning even after this series is merged.

Some other things this enables that might be of interest:

With the python tooling as a proper package, you can install this
package in editable or production mode to a virtual environment, your
local user environment, or your system packages. The primary benefit of
this is to gain access to QMP tooling regardless of CWD, without needing
to battle sys.path (and confounding other python analysis tools).

For example: when developing, you may go to qemu/python/ and run `make
venv` followed by `pipenv shell` to activate a virtual environment that
contains the qemu python packages. These packages will always reflect
the current version of the source files in the tree. When you are
finished, you can simply exit the shell (^d) to remove these packages
from your python environment.

When not developing, you could install a version of this package to your
environment outright to gain access to the QMP and QEMUMachine classes
for lightweight scripting and testing by using pip: "pip install [--user] ."


First of all, nothing should change. Without any intervention,
everything should behave exactly as it was before. The only new
information here comes from how to interact with and run the linters
that will be enforcing code quality standards in this subdirectory.

To test those, CD to qemu/python first, and then:

1. Try "make venv && pipenv shell" to get a venv with the package
installed to it in editable mode. Ctrl+d exits this venv shell. While in
this shell, any python script that uses "from qemu.[qmp|machine] import
..." should work correctly regardless of where the script is, or what
your CWD is.

You will need Python 3.6 installed on your system to do this step. For
Fedora: "dnf install python3.6" will do the trick.

2. Try "make check" while still in the shell to run the Python linters
using the venv built in the previous step. This will pull some packages
from PyPI and run pytest, which will in turn execute mypy, flake8, isort
and pylint with the correct arguments.

3. Having exited the shell from above, try "make venv-check". This will
create and update the venv if needed, then run 'make check' within the
context of that shell. It should pass as long as the above did.

4. Still outside of the venv, you may try running "make check". This
will not install anything, but unless you have the right Python
dependencies installed, these tests may fail for you. You might try
using "pip install --user .[devel]" to install the development packages
needed to run the tests successfully to your local user's python
environment. Once done, you will probably want to "pip uninstall qemu"
to remove that package to avoid it interfering with other things.

5. "make distclean" will delete the venv and any temporary files that
may have been created by packaging, installing, testing, etc.


- Moved qemu/machine/accel.py to qemu/utils/accel.py
- Integrated CI patches into this series
- Changed version of package to
- Misc different changes for import statements in e.g. iotests/VM tests
- Modified iotests invocation of mypy ever so slightly

Reviewer notes:

- The VERSION hack may be imperfect, but at 0.x and without uploading it
  to PyPI, we have *all* the time in the world to fine-tune it later.
- The CI integration may not be perfect, but it is better than *nothing*,
  so I think it's worth doing even in an imperfect state.
