[Bug 1153671] Re: Port to python3-launchpadlib


This bug was fixed in the package apport - 2.16-0ubuntu1

apport (2.16-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release:
    - Add a new method ProblemReport.extract_keys() which writes binary keys
      (which can be very large) directly to files without loading them all
      into memory first. Use that in apport-unpack. Thanks Louis Bouchard!
      (LP: #1307413)
    - launchpad backend: Work with Python 3, now that launchpadlib exists for
      Python 3. (LP: #1153671)
    - apport-bug, apport-gtk: Also check for $WAYLAND_SESSION, to use
      apport-gtk instead of apport-cli under Wayland. Thanks Tim Lunn.
      (LP: #1418766)
    - apport-gtk: When running under Wayland, avoid Gdk/Wnck operation for
      setting crash window modal to the PID of the crashed window; these only
      work under X11.
    - Don't install the test suite any more, to save 1 MB of installed space.
      It can be run out of trunk easily enough, and distributions can install
      it from tests/ if they desire.
    - hookutils, attach_root_command_outputs(): Fix UnicodeDecodeError crash
      for non-textual values. (LP: #1370259)
    - ui.py: Only provide a UI to hooks if the crash db will accept the
      report. This avoids asking questions if the report is merely sent to
      whoopsie for Ubuntu stable releases. Thanks Brian Murrary.
      (LP: #1084979)
    - whoopsie-upload-all: Add package information to the report before
      calling package hooks. Thanks Brian Murray.
    - Fix check for available terminal when checking whether to display the
      "Examine locally" button.
  * Add general hook for detecting Wayland sessions and tagging them with
    "wayland-session". Thanks Timm Lunn! (LP: #1418262)
  * debian/tests/upstream-system: Copy tests from source tree, as
    /usr/share/apport/testsuite/ does not exist any more.

  Port to python3-launchpadlib

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in python-launchpadlib package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Apport-cli depends on python3-launchpadlib for some actions, but it is
  not installable (currently). For example,

  apport-cli -u 542452
  ERROR: The launchpadlib Python module is not installed. This functionality is not available.

  The current candidates for installation on raring only include python-
  launchpadlib (which is python2 based).  I believe this bug is


  I'm  filing this against apport in the event raring is shipped without
  a python3-launchpadlib package. I would recommend updating the error
  to make what is needing to be installed more clear. IE,

  ERROR: The launchpadlib Python3 module is not installed
  (python3-launchpadlib). This functionality is not available.

  Also consider adding the library as a suggested dependency.  In
  addition, should the package not land, further steps may be required.
