Package m2crypto

This package has a packaging problem, which should be described in the notes. Check where the problem is coming from, and work with the maintainer to correct it.

If this is a false positive, file a portingdb bug.

See m2crypto in the Fedora Package Database, or go directly to the corresponding spec file.

Upstream ?

Matěj Cepl is porting m2crypto to Python 2, see the linked pull request.

rodrigc submitted many fixes upstream. Some were merged.


Fedora M

Suggested replacement: python-cryptography (or Python standard library).

While upstream is making progress porting m2crypto, moving to the cryptography module, and the cryptography features in Python's standard library, seems to be a better long-term option for dependent projects.

On the other hand with the package ported, downstream users won't have to port their crypto to new library.
