Comment 3 David Cantrell 2007-03-21 19:26:30 UTC
The traceback shows this is a problem with Python in RHEL-3.  The urllib2 module
is trying to call the formatdate() method on the rfc822 module, but that method
does not exist.  Here's the traceback:

File "/usr/lib/python2.2/", line 920, in open_local_file
 modified = rfc822.formatdate(stats[stat.ST_MTIME])
AttributeError: 'module' object has not attribute 'formatdate'

Assigning to Python.
