Description Jeffrey Ness 2011-01-26 19:27:33 UTC
Spec URL:

Description: lxml provides a Python binding to the libxslt and libxml2 libraries.
It follows the ElementTree API as much as possible in order to provide
a more Pythonic interface to libxml2 and libxslt than the default
bindings.  In particular, lxml deals with Python Unicode strings
rather than encoded UTF-8 and handles memory management automatically,
unlike the default bindings.

Comment 1 BJ Dierkes 2011-01-27 23:05:29 UTC
Per previous conversations I've had with the current maintainers of python-lxml. we should try and patch python-lxml to support a subpackage of python26-lxml on el5 before submitting another package.

Comment 3 Leslie Satenstein 2013-11-24 05:46:27 UTC
In trying to install Final TC2 (Nov 20 Fedora 64bit DVD version) error message states

python-lxml-3.2.4.--fc20x86_64 requires python-cssselect

Comment 4 Jason Tibbitts 2015-01-29 20:47:21 UTC
This has been stalled for so long I can't see why it would still be open, and the comment above doesn't appear to have any relevance to this package.

Comment 5 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-01-30 02:11:26 UTC
_smp_mflags macro should be used for the number of threads. This makes it possible to override the number if necessary:

   parallel %{?_smp_mflags} --no-notice gzip -1 ::: data/*.tom

The spec file says license is GPLv3+, is it specified anywhere?
