Description Eduardo Mayorga 2014-08-08 03:09:25 UTC
Spec URL: https://mayorga.fedorapeople.org/twine.spec
SRPM URL: https://mayorga.fedorapeople.org/twine-1.3.1-1.fc20.src.rpm
Description: Twine is a utility for interacting with PyPI.

The biggest reason to use twine is that python setup.py upload uploads
files over plaintext. This means anytime you use it you expose your
username and password to a MITM attack. Twine uses only verified TLS to
upload to PyPI protecting your credentials from theft.

Secondly it allows you to precreate your distribution files. python
setup.py upload only allows you to upload something that you’ve created
in the same command invocation. This means that you cannot test the
exact file you’re going to upload to PyPI to ensure that it works before
uploading it.

Finally it allows you to pre-sign your files and pass the .asc files
into the command line invocation (twine upload twine-1.0.1.tar.gz
twine-1.0.1.tar.gz.asc). This enables you to be assured that you’re
typing your gpg passphrase into gpg itself and not anything else since
you will be the one directly executing gpg --detach-sign -a <filename>.

Could you add a python3 subpackage?

Any update here? I still would like to see this package happen in Fedora

Hi Eduardo,

I commented on your other request (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1127967), but I realized I should probably comment on both.

I'm interested in seeing twine in Fedora as well. Is it possible to move forward with this package review? If not, per the policy for stalled package reviews[0], I'd like to close this request so I can carry on the work.

Hi Eduardo,

I've filed a new review request so I'm closing this one as a duplicate per the policy. Let me know if you're interested in being a co-maintainer!
