Description Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda 2013-07-17 09:03:43 UTC
Hi, would it be possible to add python3 subpackage to urlgrabber? Looking at the code, it seems that it should be Python 3 compatible (perhaps with few minor corrections).
Thanks.

(similar librepo request: https://github.com/Tojaj/librepo/issues/17 )

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

How are we standing with this?

If you need any extra hand with this, feel free to use me :)

Comment 10 Tomas Radej 2014-09-12 14:13:32 UTC
jzeleny told me that python-urlgrabber is to be dropped in f22, so this bug may be unnecessary.

Comment 11 Miroslav Suchý 2014-09-12 14:22:51 UTC
@jzeleny - why?

urlgrabber contains several features, which are nowhere to find (range requests, proxy support, throttling).

Comment 12 Tomas Radej 2014-09-12 15:46:36 UTC
He said that if someone requires the functionality, they have to take the ownership, but it should be dropped from all main packages.

All of them are implemented by libcurl and available via pycurl, which already supports Python 3.  urlgrabber, as it is implemented now, is only a redundant wrapper on top of pycurl.

Comment 14 Jan Zeleny 2014-09-15 10:51:59 UTC
Yes, that would be the reason. Most of the simple use cases are available via pycurl, for the more complex ones we have librepo.

To avoid any possible misunderstandings, we will not be dropping urlgrabber from Fedora. We will just minimize the active development and maintenance and discourage people from using it. Even if someone is willing to take the package and carry on, the effort spent on its maintenance would be wasted for the reasons listed above.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
