Description Robbie Harwood 2018-02-19 17:45:09 UTC
Per discussion with Matěj, we would like to replace urllib2_kerberos with urllib_gssapi as part of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/kerberos-in-python-modernization

urllib2_kerberos is not depended on by any package in Fedora, so this change should not be too disruptive.  If you would like to be involved in maintaining urllib_gssapi, I am happy to grant you access.


Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 15:38:08 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 2 Steve Traylen 2018-03-01 12:25:40 UTC
Guessing only main admin can do this.

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2018-09-22 12:57:43 UTC
Just to note that urllib_gssapi package seems to miss a lot in the quality department. https://github.com/pythongssapi/urllib-gssapi/issues/3

I am not even sure whether it does anything, not mentioning its testsuite is useless.

Comment 5 Robbie Harwood 2018-09-24 15:30:00 UTC
Before we dump too hard on urllib_gssapi: note that it's just a port of the urllib2_kerberos code to use python-gssapi, nothing more.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 7 Ben Cotton 2019-05-28 22:33:57 UTC
Fedora 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
