Description Sean Toner 2015-10-22 14:28:58 EDT
Description of problem:

For subscription-manager-gui testing, we use a test tool called ldtp which uses pyatspi and the accessibility tool kit for automation testing.  The at-spi2-core package is a dependency for the high-level pyatspi package.

The version of at-spi2-core that exists in RHEL-7.2 is 2.8.0-6.el7 is about 3 years old and it is not current enough to support testing of certain GTK3 widgets (for example drop down boxes, spinner buttons, or key event presses).  This is causing a rather large portion of our automated tests to no longer work because of the GTK3 changes.

I have built the src.rpms from Fedora23 Beta on RHEL 7.2 and was able to get several GTK3 tests to work.  The version I built which works is 

[root@dhcp129-94 ~]# rpm -qa | grep at-spi2-core

The latest version will be 2.18.0 I believe.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:

There are 3 other packages which simultaneously need to be updated:

I don't think we can do a rebase at this point, less than a week from final devel freeze. This should have been brought up much earlier. We can certainly do this for 7.3

at-spi2-core autotests pass:
