- Add ignore-W504.patch to ignore PEP8's W504 messages which make the pep8
  test fail.
* Fri Nov 10 2017
- Update to version 1.39:
  * Tests:
  * Require hypothesis
  * Run pycodestyle/pyflakes tests by default. Skip with --no-quality or
  - m no quality when using pytest directly.
  * Python 3.3 is no longer supported
  * MP3: Improved bitrate accuracy for files with XING header

- Update to version 1.38:
  * ID3:
  * Add iTunes grouping frame id3.GRP1
  * Fix exposing text frames where the text can’t be encoded with
    the reported encoding due to merging of frames
  * OGG: Fix wrong StreamInfo.length (small negative value) for all
    ogg based formats in rare cases.
- Rebased the reduce-test-length.diff patch.
- Added the hypothesis, pycodestyle and pyflakes python modules to the
  BuildRequires, since they are needed for the tests.
* Thu Apr 06 2017
- Use singlespec macros.
- Drop fix-tests-tools-names.diff which is not needed anymore.
- Add reduce-test-length.diff to reduce the number of iterations in a test
  that is repeated for each data test file, for every byte, so it only tests
  each file for the first 10 bytes. This way we reduce the time it takes to
  test mutagen (and the corresponding cpu usage in obs) from 1078 seconds
  (nearly 18 minutes) to 53 seconds (for each python version).

    ``akID`` :bug:`130`

- Run spec file through spec-cleaner
* Wed Jan 25 2017

- Add fix-tests-tools-names.diff. This fixes the tests to run
  successfully since they try to extract the module name from the tool
  name, but we changed the tools names so they can be co-installed
  with the python2 version of the tools, so we have to remove the
  "-3" suffix before importing the modules.
- Fix update-alternatives execution as mutagen-inspect and mutagen-pony
  binaries had manpage suffixes so alternative links were not created.
