Description Ken Dreyer 2015-01-15 23:45:46 UTC
EPEL has an older version of msgpack, and it would be quite nice to have a newer version. Ceph's web application "calamari", for example, requires a newer version.

Would anyone object if I updated to 0.4.4 in EPEL 6 and 7?

Comment 2 Ken Dreyer 2015-01-16 15:06:09 UTC
It looks like EPEL 7 has 0.4.2, so we'd only be talking about a big jump for EPEL 6 here (EPEL 6 is currently at 0.1.13).

Comment 3 Ken Dreyer 2015-01-23 19:32:02 UTC
I just tried an EPEL 7 build of 0.4.4. The test suite for 0.4.4 fails because of this code in test/test_unpack.py:

@mark.skipif(not hasattr(sys, 'getrefcount'),
             reason='sys.getrefcount() is needed to pass this test')

Apparently this skipif syntax only works with pytest 2.4, and RHEL 7 has pytest 2.3.5.

Here's the patch I'm sending upstream for this: https://github.com/msgpack/msgpack-python/pull/123
