FEATURE: missing support for ssh/sftp protocols
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:44 EST
Description of problem:
urlgrabber is missing support for ssh or sftp protocols.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Exception and traceback occurs.
A valid file handle to the remote file.
This feature affects using yum with ssh based repos.
On the other hand on Debian/Ubuntu a simple apt-get with ssh://user@repo works fine.
Alexander -- we're not going to do this as a RHEL update feature and I'm not
even sure that we'd want to do it within urlgrabber. If you think that it's
really important, feel free to post to the yum list and see if you can get some
people interested in working on it upstream.
