Description Mike 2020-01-15 17:21:51 UTC
We run across sip infinite loop bug in PyQt 4.10.1.

This problem with an example is described here https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/pipermail/pyqt/2014-March/033879.html.
It seems it was fixed in PyQt 4.10.4

Is it any chance to have it backported? It's very hard to workaround it.

I couldn't find a git repository with PyQt4, only tarballs with newer versions. Doing diff between 4.10.3 and 4.10.4, I'm not really able to tell what is the fix for this. I'm afraid that without a rebase, we won't be able to fix this issue.

We are not going to do a rebase at this point of RHEL 7 phase. If you are able to find the change that needs to be backported, then we can consider backporting it, but at this point I'm closing this bug.
