#2274 Python2 exception for offlineimap
Closed: Accepted a year ago by zbyszek. Opened a year ago by notting.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1751496.

Upstream started a py3 port a few years back and stopped before getting it to MVP, and is mostly stalled. Upstream said they would do py3 compat in a rewrite called imapfw... which they haven't touched in two years.

Exception would be for some period of time to try and beat it into shape.

Requirements: python2, six, gssapi (can be bundled if required)

Note that python2-gssapi is not available on rawhide https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-gssapi/c/90f97019095bf80e149854d274b6c9ff1f7e4585?branch=master

As the maintainer of six, I'm fine to maintain it a bit longer.

Yeah, python2-gssapi was only used by this until it finally got retired. As noted, I would just bundle a local copy if the exception was granted.

+1 to use python2 and python2-six. I leave up to you whether to bundle or not bundle gssapi.
