Reinstall python-socketio-client (python-websocket)
Closed, InvalidPublic


@valhallasw probably unintentionally removed python-socketio-client from genpp in b4f67487d4cbe25c604ddf9f9d32e003a535be22 with the comment: "remove socketio-client from genpp (installed via aptly)".

It had originally been installed in 4b9e12408cd3d6dab2f023d9553051618229fcbe for T86015. It was packaged locally as a tandem with python-websocket-client. I requested backports of both for Trusty as part of T91874 and they have been available for some time, but with python-websocket being 0.12.0 and not 0.23.0.

On Trusty, this works fine with the packages from backports:

But in b96e7f57905751c08a0b5c5197d47dff3bcfe182, @Anoopchandu18 added a requirement on websocket-client>=0.33 because a bug was introduced in version 0.27.0 and fixed in 0.33.0 (T114913), i. e. Pywikibot does not depend on an API only available in 0.33.0. (IMHO this is flawed: If someone fixes version 0.27.0 locally with 0.27.0~something, there is no need to update to 0.33.0).

My assumption is that the Trusty packages python-socketio-client (and its implicit dependency python-websocket) can be safely installed from backports because it will work for people not executing and those who do execute will probably work in a virtual environment anyway. I'll upload a Puppet patch soon, inviting comments.

Okay, that's now twice in a row that I can't see properly:

132         # Python libraries on apt.wm.o or tools apt repo
133         # Other python package requirements are added
134         # using the genpp tool
135         'python-flask-oauth',
136         'python-mwparserfromhell',     # T65539
137         'python-oursql',               # For danilo et al.
138         'python-socketio-client',      # T86015
139         'python-wikitools',
140         'python-mwclient',             # for morebots et al

So, no, @valhallasw didn't remove the requirement, he (correctly) removed the duplicate in, sorry. I'll handle the package "downgrade" under T91874.
