Description Luke Macken 2006-05-11 01:35:55 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/lmacken/python-mechanize.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/lmacken/python-mechanize-0.1.1a-1.src.rpm
Stateful programmatic web browsing, after Andy Lester's Perl module

The library is layered: mechanize.Browser (stateful web browser),
mechanize.UserAgent (configurable URL opener), plus urllib2 handlers.

Features include: ftp:, http: and file: URL schemes, browser history,
high-level hyperlink and HTML form support, HTTP cookies, HTTP-EQUIV and
Refresh, Referer [sic] header, robots.txt, redirections, proxies, and
Basic and Digest HTTP authentication.  mechanize's response objects are
(lazily-) .seek()able and still work after .close().

Much of the code originally derived from Perl code by Gisle Aas
(libwww-perl), Johnny Lee (MSIE Cookie support) and last but not least
Andy Lester (WWW::Mechanize).  urllib2 was written by Jeremy Hylton.
Comment 1 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-14 11:29:32 EDT
Needs work:
* The package cannot be noarch since it installs files to %{_libdir}
* Missing from python spec template:
Requires: python-abi = %(%{__python} -c "import sys ; print sys.version[:3]")
Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-14 16:29:40 EDT
Review for release 2:
* RPM name is OK
* Source mechanize-0.1.1a.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* It is the latest version (checked with the included example :) )
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint looks OK
* File list looks OK
* Works fine (tested with the included examples)

Comment 4 Luke Macken 2006-05-14 17:08:24 EDT
