Description Tomas Hoger 2012-07-13 16:57:52 EDT
Description of problem:
python-certifi comes with certificate bundle generated from nss/mozilla certdata.txt.  It's the same source that is used to build ca-bundle.crt form ca-certificates.  We should not duplicate those bundles, as that makes it more difficult to deal with updates when some CA needs to be removed.

python-certify should require ca-certificates and use that bundle.  There seem to be 2 options:
- replace cacert.pem by a symlink to /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt without changing python code
- don't include cacert.pem in the package at all, fix code to return path to /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

Additional info:
We have already done similar change for equivalent perl package - bug #738383.

It seems python-certifi was pulled into Fedora as requirement of python-requests (bug #808987), but is no longer used by python-requests:


If python-certifi is no longer needed in Fedora, please consider removing it.

Retired the package. Thank you.
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2012-07-16 03:35:26 EDT
Does it still need some git clean-up as per 2. and 3. in:

Comment 3 Arun S A G 2012-07-16 11:22:17 EDT
Aha, I missed the step 2 and 3. In that case, i need to ask a proven packager. Can you help?
Comment 4 Tomas Hoger 2012-07-16 11:40:47 EDT
I'm not proven packager, sorry.
