Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2017-12-01 08:20:26 UTC
While technically, on Fedora 25 this is still python, for the rest of fedoras, the package is python2. Changing the component.

Comment 3 Miro Hrončok 2017-12-01 08:39:05 UTC
Confirming that our rawhide to f26 fedora package have the fix, they are 2.7.14 and I've checked the code. The f25 version does not have the fix, as it is 2.7.13. Will apply patch. Changing the component back, but also changing Fedora version.

Comment 5 Miro Hrončok 2017-12-01 09:52:30 UTC
I'm going offline. The build is still running. Please, somebody do the fedpkg update.
