Description Michal Ambroz 2021-05-20 07:31:14 UTC
Description of problem:
package python-crypto (resp. python3-crypto) is not available. As a result some other packages can't be installed - for example python3-impacket.
Please could you build it for EPEL8?
If you do not want to bother I offer hand for maintaining the EPEL8 branch.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2021-05-20 07:52:55 UTC
I'd really rather not. It's dead upstream and users should really try to move over to python-cryptodomex if at all possible.

See also Bug #1758310, Bug #1869809 and Bug #1902009.

Comment 2 Michal Ambroz 2021-05-20 11:17:57 UTC
the package is in rawhide, f34,f33, f32, ... do we really need to start retiring the support for it from EPEL8?
I will be happy to maintain it for EPEL8 as long as you have it working in rawhide.

Comment 3 Michal Ambroz 2021-05-20 11:32:16 UTC
Anyway the change to pycryptodomex makes sense ... I will try to suggest that upstream. It is already used by the majority of the package.
