Description Paulo Andrade 2012-09-13 19:57:12 EDT
When looking again at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=839071
to ensure nothing did break in my review request, I learned it no longer
pass %check. Example:

$ python -c "from pytz import timezone;print timezone('Europe/Vienna')"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pytz/__init__.py", line 185, in timezone
    raise UnknownTimeZoneError(zone)
pytz.exceptions.UnknownTimeZoneError: 'Europe/Vienna'

Reading the pytz source, the simplest "fix" I could figure is:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pytz/zoneinfo
$ python -c "from pytz import timezone;print timezone('Europe/Vienna')"

Looking at it for the first time, but it appears #471014 again in
latest pytz package.

It does seem simpler than the previous patch.

Let me have a look.  Is this rawhide only, or older as well?

Rawhide only. I tested mock build of #839071 with f17 and f18 for
another issue of rawide apparently having python-setuptools as a
requires of python-devel, and the problem only happens in rawhide,
what makes sense as only rawhide has pytz 2012d, released distros
and f18 have pytz 2010h.

Instead of making a symlink, I believe it is better to patch
pytz to look directly at /usr/share/zoneinfo
Comment 3 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-09-14 09:12:54 EDT
Ok, I'll look at rediffing the patch.
Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-09-14 09:47:55 EDT
Built in rawhide, try it out.
Comment 5 Paulo Andrade 2012-09-14 19:23:18 EDT
Thanks. It works for the test case I had in %check of my package.
