Request to update python-requests in el6. I'm having trouble maintaining code compatible with the newer and older versions cookie interfaces.
If there is too much code that depends on the old interface, I'd be willing to package and maintain (or co-maintain) a forward-compat package.
What version do you want to update to? The update to cookie behavior came only with version 1.0.3 but there is a license change/API change. We cannot push the new version with EPEL and break our users.
I am still not sure about the problem you are facing with cookie interfaces. Can you explain your problem here please?
Hey, but i don't mind you co-maintaining the package for EPEL. Please go ahead and request as co-maintainer!
From checking the git log, I believe the cookie behavior that I need first appears in v0.12.0.
Here is the relevant commit: https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/commit/4d6871d9176c13affe625b1885278d396a39f21d
I'll apply for co-maintainer rights and see if we can't make 0.13 (the version from F17) work.
Just a little more info:
Before requests-0.12, you could only specify cookies as a dict of key-value pairs. requests would hide other cookie parameters from you like "secure", "domain", and "HttpOnly". The above-mentioned commit allows the user to tweak those parameters.
I think we can go upto 0.14.2 for EPEL6, we need to inform our users too!
Cool! Any idea how to send out such a notification?
Send an email to fedora-devel/EPEL lists?
