Description Dan Radez 2018-05-22 12:10:51 UTC
pexpect is in centos 7 base version 2.3-11
Ansible runner has updated it's dependencies to require version 4.5:

python-pexpect 4.4 is in fedora but not build for epel7.
I've contacted the maintainers, they don't want to maintain the el7 branch.
Even if they will let me maintain the el7 branch I don't think they will take updates to the master branch to add conditionalization to accommodate for el7 builds.

In that case we will need to fork it so we can build 4.5 in RDO.

Please fork python-pexpect into rdo-common so 4.5 can be built for el7

Comment 1 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-22 13:37:26 UTC
For the record pexpect is also 4.5.0 in upper-constraints.txt:

Comment 2 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-22 13:51:03 UTC
pexpect in fedora is still 4.4.0, bugzilla tu bump it there is

Comment 3 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-22 14:13:21 UTC
In RDO we try to not provide newer versions that the ones in base unless it's totally required. In this particular case, does ansible-runner use any feature which is not available in 2.3?

Comment 4 Dan Radez 2018-05-22 14:26:04 UTC
there are features added in pexpect 4.5 that ansible-runner will rely on when 1.0.2 is released.

In Ansible-runner 1.0.1 the base cent pexpect was sufficient.

Requesting this fork in preparation for 4.5 req being added in ansible-runner 1.0.2

Comment 5 Dan Radez 2018-05-29 21:06:18 UTC
Ansible runner 1.0.2 has landed and is in fedora.
I think we should go ahead and create this repo. I'm not sure that the upstream repo will support us in el7 in the near future.

Comment 6 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-30 12:50:36 UTC
python-pexpect 4.5.0 built in

I'll promote it to rocky-testing tag.

Comment 7 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-30 13:26:25 UTC
Promotion proposed in

Comment 8 Alfredo Moralejo 2018-05-31 11:11:22 UTC
pexpect 4.5.0 is now available in dependencies repo for rocky
