1.230. python-urlgrabber

An updated python-urlgrabber package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
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#695747
Due to changes to the curl packages that enabled the use of Network Security Services (NSS) by default, urlgrabber may have been unable to retrieve remote data. Consequent to this, an attempt to download repository data using the Yum package manager could fail with the "HTTP 403" status code. This update adapts urlgrabber to retain the compatibility with the curl packages, so that the applications that use this package (including Yum) can retrieve remote data as expected.
All users of python-urlgrabber are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
