SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for python-kiwi
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2019:0319-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1110871 #1119792
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Open Buildservice Development Tools 15
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Development Tools 15

An update that has two recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:

This update for python-kiwi provides the following fixes:

  • Rebuild auto generated code with stable generateDS. For some reason the xml_parse code generated by generateDS v2.29.24 caused warnings on simple type XSD patterns. Therefore the code was rebuilt with the stable build version v2.29.14 which fixed the issue. (bsc#1119792)
  • Add Codec utils for bytes literals decoding. In case of a literal decoding failure it tries to decode the result in utf-8. This is handy in python2 environments where python and the host might be using different charset configurations. In python3 this issue seems to be solved. (bsc#1110871)
