Updated python-urlgrabber packages that fix one bug are now available.
The python-urlgrabber package provides urlgrabber, a high-level url-fetching package for the Python programming language and a corresponding utility of the same name. The urlgrabber package allows Python scripts to fetch data using the HTTP and FTP protocols, as well as from a local file system.

Bug Fix

BZ#807030
Previously, a flaw in the source code resulted in a traceback error when users used the reposync command to synchronize a remote Yum repository to a local directory, when the utime() system call had an error. This update corrects the mistake in the source code, and traceback errors no longer occur in the described scenario.
Users of python-urlgrabber are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
