Description of problem:
We like to add ipython to epel7, which requires a more recent version of python-tornado.
Please reconsider to update python-tornado in the next RHEL release to a more recent version.
Until then, we'll probably provide new versions in a COPR repository:
As near as I can tell, python-tornado is only in EL7 currently to provide a BR for python-urllib3 for unit testing.
Is there any movement on this? There are some packages/dependencies out there that require a python-tornado version of 4.2.1 or higher (example, saltstack cannot be rebased to 2015.8 in EPEL because it requires python-tornado of 4.2.1 or higher).
Saltstack example: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1281995
Tickets that reference python-tornado and rebasing.
A little update: ipython already is in epel7 and it works. python-tornado >= 4.0 is only needed for the optional subpackage `python-ipython-notebook`.
