Description

Tails Installer uses configobj whose python3 version is not in debian. It is supported upstream (https://github.com/DiffSK/configobj/blob/b75f39b4e44f6e6ce422921a8734169a4324f223/docs/configobj.rst) and should be packaged.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri about 5 years ago

Tails Greeter uses configobj

It's not in the dependencies, and I could not find traces of its usage.
How can I verify that it's used?
And if it's used, maybe there's a python3 alternative that would be cheaper than having a new module packaged in time for Jessie?

  • Description updated (diff)
  • Category set to Installation

Ah, OK, got it: Tails Installer uses configobj, the greeter doesn't. Fixed the description accordingly. My question about potential available (and already packaged) alternatives remains, though.

- if we don't mind diverging from upstream we could use configparser from the standard library (https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/configparser.html)
- we don't use any configuration files, so all this is actually useless for us

I think that we added the config file support, and thus this dependency, ourselves.
