compat using proxy with authentication fails
Closed, ResolvedPublic


urllib2 https proxy auth has not yet been fixed in Proxy(Basic|Digest)AuthHandler for py2.6 & pt2.7.

To workaround this bug, we must use ProxyHandler which has been fixed.

For the proxy support to be effective throughout the Pywikibot code, MyURLopener must be set as the default opener with urllib2.install_opener.

Pywikibot has two versions: Compat and Core. This task was filed about the older version, called Pywikibot-compat, which is not under active development anymore. Hence I'm lowering the priority of this task to reflect the reality. Unfortunately, the Pywikibot team does not have the manpower to retest every single bug report / feature request against the (maintained) Pywikibot code base. Furthermore, the code base of Pywikibot-Compat has changed a lot compared to the code base of Pywikibot-Core so there is a chance that the problem described in this task might not exist anymore. Please help: Unfortunately manpower is limited and does not allow testing every single reported task again. If you have time and interest in Pywikibot, please upgrade to Pywikibot-Core and add a comment to this task if the problem in this task still happens in Pywikibot-Core (or directly edit the task by removing the Pywikibot-compat project and adding the Pywikibot project to this task). To learn more about Pywikibot and to get involved in its development, please check out Thank you for your understanding.
