[RFE] Replace python-cheetah with python-jinja2 within ovirt-engine
Last modified: 2016-07-07 21:53:53 EDT
ovirt-engine is using python-cheetah for handling the templates used within the project.
python-cheetah didn't receive updates since 2012 and is not available on RHEL 7.2.
Since we're dropping el6 support in 4.0 we should migrate to a template engine available in el7 like python-jinja2 which is
available in 7.2 and still actively developed (last commit is on August
Juan if we migrate to python-jinja2 will it require changes on Java side as well?
I believe it won't require changes in the Java side.
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.
[root@jb-rhevm40 ~]# rpm -qR ovirt-engine-backend | grep python-
[root@jb-rhevm40 ~]# rpm -qa \*cheetah\*
[root@jb-rhevm40 ~]# rpm -q ovirt-engine-backend
oVirt 4.0.0 has been released, closing current release.
