PackageKit needs to overload _checkSignatures
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:14:30 EST
Description of problem:
PackageKit needs to overload _checkSignatures, which worries me as the underscore in python methods usually means that it's private "an implementation detail and subject to change without notice", and not part of the public API. It would be nice for this function to be exported (loose the _ prefix) so PackageKit can just override a public method like other modules and I don't have to worry about it changing in the future and breaking PackageKit. Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It looks like the only thing PK is doing in its _checkSignatures()
is changing this line in yum:
which seems odd since _askForGPGKeyImport is explicitly listed in yum as:
def _askForGPGKeyImport(self, po, userid, hexkeyid):
Ask for GPGKeyImport
This need to be overloaded in a subclass to make GPG Key import work
so... what is it you want yum to do here?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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 to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
