Description Dave Malcolm 2010-08-01 21:33:19 UTC
The package needs to be rebuilt against python 2.7 in both F14 and devel.

Automated rebuild fails; python 2.7 seems to be more picky about encoding issues than previous versions:
I'll take a look at this.

Information on the new "dist-git" system can be seen here:

Information on common difficulties with Python 2.7 rebuilds can be seen here:

Once it's been successfully rebuilt for F14, an update needs to be filed to get the rebuild into F14:

Please add this bug to the update, to make it easy to track what's been done, and what's left to do.

[david@brick DNS]$ file *.py
Base.py:     ASCII English text
Class.py:    ASCII English text
__init__.py: ASCII English text
lazy.py:     ASCII English text
Lib.py:      ISO-8859 English text
Opcode.py:   ASCII English text
Status.py:   ASCII English text
Type.py:     ISO-8859 English text
win32dns.py: ASCII English text

Using hexdump, it looks like Lib.py and Type.py contain one-byte encodings of "Michael Ströder"'s name.

However, __init__.py, Lib.py and Type.py all come (upstream) with:
  # -*- encoding: utf-8 -*-
lines (which appear to be incorrect for the two above; the "ö" should be two-bytes in UTF-8, I believe).

The specfile adds a downstream:
  # -*- coding: latin-1 -*-
to the top of every file, so the three files above end up with two "encoding" lines; I believe that that's what python 2.7 is complaining about
