Description James Antill 2010-05-10 15:45:13 UTC
Description of problem:

 If we are going to use xz from createrepo/yum we need python bindings. Worst case I can probably do them, but it'd be nice if an xz maintainer did them for me :).
 This blocks 590743, which is kind of important for 6.0

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-05-10 16:54:36 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2010-05-10 19:06:37 UTC
James, it will hardly happen as I don't want to touch Python with a pole and am total Python n00b :)

In any case I'm willing to help you writing it as I'm quite experienced with xz's API and can help you push things upstream or provide some examples.

Comment 4 James Antill 2010-06-23 14:14:15 UTC
I guess this should be closed ... as there are external bindings we are using atm. "pylzma", which is "import lzma".

Ok, closing WONTFIX based on comment #4...
