Need epel6 build for python-cryptography
Last modified: 2018-04-11 02:28:00 EDT
python-cryptography is a dependency for python-acme (and in turn letsencrypt). I can get python-idna building on EL6 (python 2.6), but it fails on the unit tests. I'm not too sure whether this is a failing in the module itself or in the tests.
reported against wrong component, I think this is supposed to be against python-cryptography

Itamar, the bug is not incorrectly assigned, but badly worded. letsencrypt in EPEL6 would require python-acme, which would require python-cryptography, which would require python-idna.
Working on this, I was able to reproduce this issue. The tests fail with the latest master as well in Python 2.6. I'm not sure if Python 2.6 is even supposed to work with the project and have opened an issue upstream.
Getting the tests fixed and a confirmation would be a prerequisite to epel6 submission.
