Remove PyXML dep
Last modified: 2016-01-04 09:40:42 EST
Description of problem:
We're trying to remove PyXML from Fedora 18 due to it being dead upstream and having the dubious behaviour of replacing the python stdlib's xml module with its own code. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Toshio/Remove_PyXML
I've taken a look at python-nova's use of PyXML and I think we can just remove the dep. No documentation mentions a PyXML requirement. The code uses xml.dom.minidom and xml.parsers.expat which are both present in the python stdlib and lxml which is in the python-lxml package.
cool, I'll remove that so (after doing my own checks)
This dependency is now removed in Fedora 17 and 18
