Description Miro Hrončok 2019-08-26 07:57:45 UTC
offlineimap-7.2.4-1.fc31.noarch fails to install in Fedora rawhide:

  nothing provides python2-gssapi needed by offlineimap-7.2.4-1.fc31.noarch

This is most likely caused by a dependency that was retired.
Please drop the dependency, unretire the dependency or remove the package. Thanks

Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2019-09-04 21:57:50 UTC
In preparation for the Python 2 EOL, we are removing all non-installable Python 2 packages:

This bug is still in the NEW state and the package does not install. Please indicate you are working on a fix by setting the state to ASSIGNED. When this bug is four weeks in the NEW state, the package may be orphaned.

Note that you don't have to actually fix this right now, setting the bug to ASSIGNED will just mark this as being worked on, so I'll know it is being taken care of. If this happens too quickly, feel free to reach to me any time for help (with specific problems).

(If you know for sure this package shall be removed, consider doing it.)

Thank You!

This is still the case:

 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides python2-gssapi needed by offlineimap-7.2.4-3.fc32.noarch

Comment 3 Petr Viktorin (pviktori) 2020-02-04 14:22:02 UTC
Uninstallable packages like offlineimap will be retired Feb 18th, one week before the Beta freeze.
Bill, do you need any help fixing this?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2020-02-05 04:03:55 UTC
Sorry about the delay, mostly just need to make the time instead of waiting for the time.

Fixed in 7.2.4-5. Note that this makes it an arch-specific package.
