- Require cchardet explicitly to avoid charset-normalizer braindamage. 

Mon May  8 11:39:40 UTC 2023 - Daniel Garcia <>

- Update to 4.12.2:
  * Fixed an unhandled exception in BeautifulSoup.decode_contents
    and methods that call it. [bug=2015545]
- 4.12.1:
  * This version of Beautiful Soup replaces and setup.cfg
    with pyproject.toml. Beautiful Soup now uses tox as its test backend
    and hatch to do builds.
  * The main functional improvement in this version is a nonrecursive technique
    for regenerating a tree. This technique is used to avoid situations where,
    in previous versions, doing something to a very deeply nested tree
    would overflow the Python interpreter stack:
    1. Outputting a tree as a string, e.g. with
       BeautifulSoup.encode() [bug=1471755]
    2. Making copies of trees (copy.copy() and
       copy.deepcopy() from the Python standard library). [bug=1709837]
    3. Pickling a BeautifulSoup object. (Note that pickling a Tag
       object can still cause an overflow.)
  * Making a copy of a BeautifulSoup object no longer parses the
    document again, which should improve performance significantly.
  * When a BeautifulSoup object is unpickled, Beautiful Soup now
    tries to associate an appropriate TreeBuilder object with it.
  * Tag.prettify() will now consistently end prettified markup with
    a newline.
  * Added unit tests for fuzz test cases created by third
    parties. Some of these tests are skipped since they point
    to problems outside of Beautiful Soup, but this change
    puts them all in one convenient place.
  * PageElement now implements the known_xml attribute. (This was technically
    a bug, but it shouldn't be an issue in normal use.) [bug=2007895]
  * The script was still written in
    Python 2. I've converted it to Python 3, but since no one has
    mentioned this over the years, it's a sign that no one uses this
    script and it's not serving its purpose.
- 4.12.0:
  * Introduced the .css property, which centralizes all access to
    the Soup Sieve API. This allows Beautiful Soup to give direct
    access to as much of Soup Sieve that makes sense, without cluttering
    the BeautifulSoup and Tag classes with a lot of new methods.
    This does mean one addition to the BeautifulSoup and Tag classes
    (the .css property itself), so this might be a breaking change if you
    happen to use Beautiful Soup to parse XML that includes a tag called
    <css>. In particular, code like this will stop working in 4.12.0:


    Code like this will work just as before:


    The Soup Sieve methods supported through the .css property are
    select(), select_one(), iselect(), closest(), match(), filter(),
    escape(), and compile(). The BeautifulSoup and Tag classes still
    support the select() and select_one() methods; they have not been
    deprecated, but they have been demoted to convenience methods.


  * When the html.parser parser decides it can't parse a document, Beautiful
    Soup now consistently propagates this fact by raising a
    ParserRejectedMarkup error. [bug=2007343]
  * Removed some error checking code from diagnose(), which is redundant with
    similar (but more Pythonic) code in the BeautifulSoup constructor.
  * Added intersphinx references to the documentation so that other
    projects have a target to point to when they reference Beautiful
    Soup classes. [bug=1453370]
- 4.11.2:
  * Fixed test failures caused by nondeterministic behavior of
    UnicodeDammit's character detection, depending on the platform setup.
  * Fixed another crash when overriding multi_valued_attributes and using the
    html5lib parser. [bug=1948488]
  * The HTMLFormatter and XMLFormatter constructors no longer return a
    value. [bug=1992693]
  * Tag.interesting_string_types is now propagated when a tag is
    copied. [bug=1990400]
  * Warnings now do their best to provide an appropriate stacklevel,
    improving the usefulness of the message. [bug=1978744]
  * Passing a Tag's .contents into PageElement.extend() now works the
    same way as passing the Tag itself.
  * Soup Sieve tests will be skipped if the library is not installed.
- 4.11.1:
  This release was done to ensure that the unit tests are packaged along
  with the released source. There are no functionality changes in this
  release, but there are a few other packaging changes:
  * The Japanese and Korean translations of the documentation are included.
  * The changelog is now packaged as CHANGELOG, and the license file is
    packaged as LICENSE. NEWS.txt and COPYING.txt are still present,
    but may be removed in the future.
  * TODO.txt is no longer packaged, since a TODO is not relevant for released
- 4.11.0:
  * Ported unit tests to use pytest.
  * Added special string classes, RubyParenthesisString and RubyTextString,
    to make it possible to treat ruby text specially in get_text() calls.
  * It's now possible to customize the way output is indented by
    providing a value for the 'indent' argument to the Formatter
    constructor. The 'indent' argument works very similarly to the
    argument of the same name in the Python standard library's
    json.dump() function. [bug=1955497]
  * If the charset-normalizer Python module
    ( is installed, Beautiful
    Soup will use it to detect the character sets of incoming documents.
    This is also the module used by newer versions of the Requests library.
    For the sake of backwards compatibility, chardet and cchardet both take
    precedence if installed. [bug=1955346]
  * Added a workaround for an lxml bug
    ( that causes
    problems when parsing a Unicode string beginning with BYTE ORDER MARK.
  * Issue a warning when an HTML parser is used to parse a document that
    looks like XML but not XHTML. [bug=1939121]
  * Do a better job of keeping track of namespaces as an XML document is
    parsed, so that CSS selectors that use namespaces will do the right
    thing more often. [bug=1946243]
  * Some time ago, the misleadingly named "text" argument to find-type
    methods was renamed to the more accurate "string." But this supposed
    "renaming" didn't make it into important places like the method
    signatures or the docstrings. That's corrected in this
    version. "text" still works, but will give a DeprecationWarning.
  * Fixed a crash when pickling a BeautifulSoup object that has no
    tree builder. [bug=1934003]
  * Fixed a crash when overriding multi_valued_attributes and using the
    html5lib parser. [bug=1948488]
  * Standardized the wording of the MarkupResemblesLocatorWarning
    warnings to omit untrusted input and make the warnings less
    judgmental about what you ought to be doing. [bug=1955450]
  * Removed support for the iconv_codec library, which doesn't seem
    to exist anymore and was never put up on PyPI. (The closest
    replacement on PyPI, iconv_codecs, is GPL-licensed, so we can't use
    it--it's also quite old.)

Sun Apr 23 23:26:12 UTC 2023 - Matej Cepl <>

- Switch documentation to be within the main package.

Fri Apr 21 12:22:35 UTC 2023 - Dirk Müller <>

- add sle15_python_module_pythons (jsc#PED-68)

Thu Apr 13 22:40:14 UTC 2023 - Matej Cepl <>

- Make calling of %{sle15modernpython} optional.

Wed Feb  9 10:14:27 UTC 2022 - Steve Kowalik <>

- Update to 4.10.0:
  * This is the first release of Beautiful Soup to only support Python 3.
  * The behavior of methods like .get_text() and .strings now differs
    depending on the type of tag.
  * NavigableString and its subclasses now implement the get_text()
    method, as well as the properties .strings and
  * The 'html5' formatter now treats attributes whose values are the
    empty string as HTML boolean attributes.
  * The 'replace_with()' method now takes a variable number of arguments,
    and can be used to replace a single element with a sequence of elements.
  * Corrected output when the namespace prefix associated with a
    namespaced attribute is the empty string, as opposed to
  * Performance improvement when processing tags that speeds up overall
    tree construction by 2%. Patch by Morotti. [bug=1899358]
  * Corrected the use of special string container classes in cases when a
    single tag may contain strings with different containers; such as
    the <template> tag, which may contain both TemplateString objects
    and Comment objects.
  * The html.parser tree builder can now handle named entities
    found in the HTML5 spec in much the same way that the html5lib
    tree builder does.
  * Added a second way to pass specify encodings to UnicodeDammit and
    EncodingDetector, based on the order of precedence defined in the
    HTML5 spec.
  * Improve the warning issued when a directory name (as opposed to
    the name of a regular file) is passed as markup into the BeautifulSoup
- Do not pass the directory to pytest.

Sat Oct 10 18:34:16 UTC 2020 - Arun Persaud <>

- update to version 4.9.3:
  * Implemented a significant performance optimization to the process
    of searching the parse tree. Patch by Morotti. [bug=1898212]

Mon Sep 28 11:41:27 UTC 2020 - Dirk Mueller <>

- update to 4.9.2:
  * Fixed a bug that caused too many tags to be popped from the tag
    stack during tree building, when encountering a closing tag that had
    no matching opening tag. [bug=1880420]

  * Fixed a bug that inconsistently moved elements over when passing
    a Tag, rather than a list, into Tag.extend(). [bug=1885710]

  * Specify the soupsieve dependency in a way that complies with
    PEP 508. Patch by Mike Nerone. [bug=1893696]

  * Change the signatures for BeautifulSoup.insert_before and insert_after
    (which are not implemented) to match PageElement.insert_before and
    insert_after, quieting warnings in some IDEs. [bug=1897120]

Wed Jun  3 11:10:03 UTC 2020 - Dirk Mueller <>

- update to 4.9.1:
  * Added a keyword argument 'on_duplicate_attribute' to the
    BeautifulSoupHTMLParser constructor (used by the html.parser tree
    builder) which lets you customize the handling of markup that
    contains the same attribute more than once, as in:
    <a href="url1" href="url2"> [bug=1878209]
  * Added a distinct subclass, GuessedAtParserWarning, for the warning
    issued when BeautifulSoup is instantiated without a parser being
    specified. [bug=1873787]
  * Added a distinct subclass, MarkupResemblesLocatorWarning, for the
    warning issued when BeautifulSoup is instantiated with 'markup' that
    actually seems to be a URL or the path to a file on
    disk. [bug=1873787]
  * The new NavigableString subclasses (Stylesheet, Script, and
    TemplateString) can now be imported directly from the bs4 package.
  * If you encode a document with a Python-specific encoding like
    'unicode_escape', that encoding is no longer mentioned in the final
    XML or HTML document. Instead, encoding information is omitted or
    left blank. [bug=1874955]
  * Fixed test failures when run against soupselect 2.0. Patch by Tomáš
    Chvátal. [bug=1872279]
- remove soupsieve2-tests.patch: upstreamed

Sun Apr 12 08:31:00 UTC 2020 - Tomáš Chvátal <>

- Add patch to fix the tests to pass with new soupsieve too:
  * soupsieve2-tests.patch
  * The assert name changed

Sun Apr 12 07:50:37 UTC 2020 - Tomáš Chvátal <>

- Update to 4.9.0:
  * fixes to work with new soupsieve

Wed Jan  1 08:52:41 UTC 2020 - Ismail Dönmez <>

- Update to 4.8.2
  * Added Python docstrings to all public methods of the most commonly
    used classes.
  * Fixed two deprecation warnings. Patches by Colin
    Watson and Nicholas Neumann. [bug=1847592] [bug=1855301]
  * The html.parser tree builder now correctly handles DOCTYPEs that are
    not uppercase. [bug=1848401]
  * now returns a ResultSet rather than a regular
    list, making it consistent with methods like find_all().

Fri Nov  1 08:59:57 UTC 2019 - Tomáš Chvátal <>

- Update to 4.8.1:
  * When the html.parser or html5lib parsers are in use, Beautiful Soup
    will, by default, record the position in the original document where
    each tag was encountered.
  * Fixed the definition of the default XML namespace when using
    lxml 4.4.
  * Avoid a crash when unpickling certain parse trees generated
    using html5lib on Python 3.
  * Avoid a crash when trying to detect the declared encoding of a
    Unicode document.
- Drop patch beautifulsoup4-lxml-fixes.patch as it seems not needed

Mon Oct 14 11:41:52 UTC 2019 - Matej Cepl <>

- Replace %fdupes -s with plain %fdupes; hardlinks are better.

Mon Jul 22 16:18:23 UTC 2019 - Todd R <>

- Update to 4.8.0
  * It's now possible to customize the TreeBuilder object by passing
    keyword arguments into the BeautifulSoup constructor. The main
    reason to do this right now is to change how which attributes are
    treated as multi-valued attributes (the way 'class' is treated by
    default). You can do this with the `multi_valued_attributes` argument.
  * The role of Formatter objects has been greatly expanded. The Formatter
    class now controls the following:
    > The function to call to perform entity substitution. (This was
      previously Formatter's only job.)
    > Which tags should be treated as containing CDATA and have their
      contents exempt from entity substitution.
    > The order in which a tag's attributes are output.
    > Whether or not to put a '/' inside a void element, e.g. '<br/>' vs '<br>'
    All preexisting code should work as before.
  * Added a new method to the API, Tag.smooth(), which consolidates
    multiple adjacent NavigableString elements.
  * &apos; (which is valid in XML, XHTML, and HTML 5, but not HTML 4) is now
    recognized as a named entity and converted to a single quote.

Fri Mar  1 11:23:21 UTC 2019 - Tomáš Chvátal <>

- Do not generate doc for py2 and py3 variant they are the same
  so keep just one around
- Update to 4.7.1:
  * Fixed a significant performance problem introduced in 4.7.0. [bug=1810617]
  * Fixed an incorrectly raised exception when inserting a tag before or
    after an identical tag. [bug=1810692]
  * Beautiful Soup will no longer try to keep track of namespaces that
    are not defined with a prefix; this can confuse soupselect. [bug=1810680]
  * Tried even harder to avoid the deprecation warning originally fixed in
     4.6.1. [bug=1778909]
  * Beautiful Soup's CSS Selector implementation has been replaced by a
    dependency on Isaac Muse's SoupSieve project (the soupsieve package
    on PyPI). The good news is that SoupSieve has a much more robust and
    complete implementation of CSS selectors, resolving a large number
    of longstanding issues. The bad news is that from this point onward,
    SoupSieve must be installed if you want to use the select() method.
  * Added the PageElement.extend() method, which works like list.append().
  * PageElement.insert_before() and insert_after() now take a variable
     number of arguments. [bug=1514970]
  * Fix a number of problems with the tree builder that caused
    trees that were superficially okay, but which fell apart when bits
    were extracted. Patch by Isaac Muse. [bug=1782928,1809910]
  * Fixed a problem with the tree builder in which elements that
    contained no content (such as empty comments and all-whitespace
    elements) were not being treated as part of the tree. Patch by Isaac
    Muse. [bug=1798699]
  * Fixed a problem with multi-valued attributes where the value
    contained whitespace. Thanks to Jens Svalgaard for the
    fix. [bug=1787453]
  * Clarified ambiguous license statements in the source code. Beautiful
    Soup is released under the MIT license, and has been since 4.4.0.

Thu Dec  6 14:47:30 UTC 2018 - Ondřej Súkup <>

- update to 4.6.3
 * Fix an exception when a custom formatter was asked to format
     a void element

Sun Aug  5 11:02:25 UTC 2018 -

- update to 4.6.1:
  * Stop data loss when encountering an empty numeric entity, and
    possibly in other cases.  Thanks to tos.kamiya for the fix. [bug=1698503]
  * Preserve XML namespaces introduced inside an XML document, not just
     the ones introduced at the top level. [bug=1718787]
  * Added a new formatter, "html5", which represents void elements
     as "<element>" rather than "<element/>".  [bug=1716272]
  * Fixed a problem where the html.parser tree builder interpreted
    a string like "&foo " as the character entity "&foo;"  [bug=1728706]
  * Correctly handle invalid HTML numeric character entities like &#147;
    which reference code points that are not Unicode code points. Note
    that this is only fixed when Beautiful Soup is used with the
    html.parser parser -- html5lib already worked and I couldn't fix it
    with lxml.  [bug=1782933]
  * Improved the warning given when no parser is specified. [bug=1780571]
  * When markup contains duplicate elements, a select() call that
    includes multiple match clauses will match all relevant
    elements. [bug=1770596]
  * Fixed code that was causing deprecation warnings in recent Python 3
    versions. Includes a patch from Ville Skyttä. [bug=1778909] [bug=1689496]
  * Fixed a Windows crash in diagnose() when checking whether a long
    markup string is a filename. [bug=1737121]
  * Stopped HTMLParser from raising an exception in very rare cases of
    bad markup. [bug=1708831]
  * Fixed a bug where find_all() was not working when asked to find a
    tag with a namespaced name in an XML document that was parsed as
    HTML. [bug=1723783]
  * You can get finer control over formatting by subclassing
    bs4.element.Formatter and passing a Formatter instance into (e.g.)
    encode(). [bug=1716272]
  * You can pass a dictionary of `attrs` into
    BeautifulSoup.new_tag. This makes it possible to create a tag with
    an attribute like 'name' that would otherwise be masked by another
    argument of new_tag. [bug=1779276]
  * Clarified the deprecation warning when accessing tag.fooTag, to cover
    the possibility that you might really have been looking for a tag
    called 'fooTag'.

Mon Jul 16 18:08:01 UTC 2018 -

- Clean SPEC file
  Use py.test for running the tests instead of nosetests, which
  breaks with python 3.7.

Tue Mar  6 12:27:41 UTC 2018 -

- Allows Recommends and Suggest in Fedora

Tue Feb 27 17:00:11 UTC 2018 -

- Recommends and Suggest are for SUSE

Thu Aug 10 13:38:03 UTC 2017 -

- Only Suggests python-html5lib and python-lxml (instead of Requires
  them). Both are not striclty needed. See

Wed Jul  5 06:28:31 UTC 2017 -

- update to 4.6.0:
  * Added the `Tag.get_attribute_list` method, which acts like `Tag.get` for
    getting the value of an attribute, but which always returns a list,
    whether or not the attribute is a multi-value attribute. [bug=1678589]
  * Improved the handling of empty-element tags like <br> when using the
    html.parser parser. [bug=1676935]
  * HTML parsers treat all HTML4 and HTML5 empty element tags (aka void
    element tags) correctly. [bug=1656909]
  * Namespace prefix is preserved when an XML tag is copied. Thanks
    to Vikas for a patch and test. [bug=1685172]

Mon May 22 13:25:06 UTC 2017 -

- Fixed failing tests in python3

Sat Apr  8 17:35:17 UTC 2017 -

- update to version 4.5.3:
  * Fixed foster parenting when html5lib is the tree builder. Thanks
    to Geoffrey Sneddon for a patch and test.
  * Fixed yet another problem that caused the html5lib tree builder to
    create a disconnected parse tree. [bug=1629825]
  changes from version 4.5.2:
  * Apart from the version number, this release is identical to
    4.5.3. Due to user error, it could not be completely uploaded to
    PyPI. Use 4.5.3 instead.

- Converted to single-spec

Thu Sep  1 19:20:36 UTC 2016 -

- Relax BuildRequires for python-Sphinx

Thu Sep  1 10:26:24 UTC 2016 -

- update to 4.5.1:
  * Fixed a crash when passing Unicode markup that contained a
    processing instruction into the lxml HTML parser on Python
    3. [bug=1608048]
  * Beautiful Soup is no longer compatible with Python 2.6. This
    actually happened a few releases ago, but it's now official.
  * Beautiful Soup will now work with versions of html5lib greater than
    0.99999999. [bug=1603299]
  * If a search against each individual value of a multi-valued
    attribute fails, the search will be run one final time against the
    complete attribute value considered as a single string. That is, if
    a tag has class="foo bar" and neither "foo" nor "bar" matches, but
    "foo bar" does, the tag is now considered a match.
    This happened in previous versions, but only when the value being
    searched for was a string. Now it also works when that value is
    a regular expression, a list of strings, etc. [bug=1476868]
  * Fixed a bug that deranged the tree when a whitespace element was
    reparented into a tag that contained an identical whitespace
    element. [bug=1505351]
  * Added support for CSS selector values that contain quoted spaces,
    such as tag[style="display: foo"]. [bug=1540588]
  * Corrected handling of XML processing instructions. [bug=1504393]
  * Corrected an encoding error that happened when a BeautifulSoup
    object was copied. [bug=1554439]
  * The contents of <textarea> tags will no longer be modified when the
    tree is prettified. [bug=1555829]
  * When a BeautifulSoup object is pickled but its tree builder cannot
    be pickled, its .builder attribute is set to None instead of being
    destroyed. This avoids a performance problem once the object is
    unpickled. [bug=1523629]
  * Specify the file and line number when warning about a
    BeautifulSoup object being instantiated without a parser being
    specified. [bug=1574647]
  * The `limit` argument to `select()` now works correctly, though it's
    not implemented very efficiently. [bug=1520530]
  * Fixed a Python 3 ByteWarning when a URL was passed in as though it
    were markup. Thanks to James Salter for a patch and
    test. [bug=1533762]
  * We don't run the check for a filename passed in as markup if the
    'filename' contains a less-than character; the less-than character
    indicates it's most likely a very small document. [bug=1577864]

Sun Nov 15 16:31:46 UTC 2015 -

- Update to version 4.4.1
  * Fixed a bug that deranged the tree when part of it was
    removed. Thanks to Eric Weiser for the patch and John Wiseman for a
    test. lp#1481520
  * Fixed a parse bug with the html5lib tree-builder. Thanks to Roel
    Kramer for the patch. lp#1483781
  * Improved the implementation of CSS selector grouping. Thanks to
    Orangain for the patch. lp#1484543
  * Fixed the test_detect_utf8 test so that it works when chardet is
    installed. lp#1471359
  * Corrected the output of Declaration objects. lp#1477847

Mon Jul 27 18:54:20 UTC 2015 -

- update to 4.4.0
  Especially important changes:
  * Added a warning when you instantiate a BeautifulSoup object without
    explicitly naming a parser. [bug=1398866]
  * __repr__ now returns an ASCII bytestring in Python 2, and a Unicode
    string in Python 3, instead of a UTF8-encoded bytestring in both
    versions. In Python 3, __str__ now returns a Unicode string instead
    of a bytestring. [bug=1420131]
  * The `text` argument to the find_* methods is now called `string`,
    which is more accurate. `text` still works, but `string` is the
    argument described in the documentation. `text` may eventually
    change its meaning, but not for a very long time. [bug=1366856]
  * Changed the way soup objects work under copy.copy(). Copying a
    NavigableString or a Tag will give you a new NavigableString that's
    equal to the old one but not connected to the parse tree. Patch by
    Martijn Peters. [bug=1307490]
  * Started using a standard MIT license. [bug=1294662]
  * Added a Chinese translation of the documentation by Delong .w.
  New features:
  * Introduced the select_one() method, which uses a CSS selector but
    only returns the first match, instead of a list of
    matches. [bug=1349367]
  * You can now create a Tag object without specifying a
    TreeBuilder. Patch by Martijn Pieters. [bug=1307471]
  * You can now create a NavigableString or a subclass just by invoking
    the constructor. [bug=1294315]
  * Added an `exclude_encodings` argument to UnicodeDammit and to the
    Beautiful Soup constructor, which lets you prohibit the detection of
    an encoding that you know is wrong. [bug=1469408]
  * The select() method now supports selector grouping. Patch by
    Francisco Canas [bug=1191917]
  Bug fixes:
  * Fixed yet another problem that caused the html5lib tree builder to
    create a disconnected parse tree. [bug=1237763]
  * Force object_was_parsed() to keep the tree intact even when an element
    from later in the document is moved into place. [bug=1430633]
  * Fixed yet another bug that caused a disconnected tree when html5lib
    copied an element from one part of the tree to another. [bug=1270611]
  * Fixed a bug where Element.extract() could create an infinite loop in
    the remaining tree.
  * The select() method can now find tags whose names contain
    dashes. Patch by Francisco Canas. [bug=1276211]
  * The select() method can now find tags with attributes whose names
    contain dashes. Patch by Marek Kapolka. [bug=1304007]
  * Improved the lxml tree builder's handling of processing
    instructions. [bug=1294645]
  * Restored the helpful syntax error that happens when you try to
    import the Python 2 edition of Beautiful Soup under Python 3.
  * In Python 3.4 and above, set the new convert_charrefs argument to
    the html.parser constructor to avoid a warning and future
    failures. Patch by Stefano Revera. [bug=1375721]
  * The warning when you pass in a filename or URL as markup will now be
    displayed correctly even if the filename or URL is a Unicode
    string. [bug=1268888]
  * If the initial <html> tag contains a CDATA list attribute such as
    'class', the html5lib tree builder will now turn its value into a
    list, as it would with any other tag. [bug=1296481]
  * Fixed an import error in Python 3.5 caused by the removal of the
    HTMLParseError class. [bug=1420063]
  * Improved docstring for encode_contents() and
    decode_contents(). [bug=1441543]
  * Fixed a crash in Unicode, Dammit's encoding detector when the name
    of the encoding itself contained invalid bytes. [bug=1360913]
  * Improved the exception raised when you call .unwrap() or
    .replace_with() on an element that's not attached to a tree.
  * Raise a NotImplementedError whenever an unsupported CSS pseudoclass
    is used in select(). Previously some cases did not result in a
  * It's now possible to pickle a BeautifulSoup object no matter which
    tree builder was used to create it. However, the only tree builder
    that survives the pickling process is the HTMLParserTreeBuilder
    ('html.parser'). If you unpickle a BeautifulSoup object created with
    some other tree builder, soup.builder will be None. [bug=1231545]

- Add beautifulsoup4-lxml-fixes.patch: LXML fixes

Tue Oct 22 13:00:00 UTC 2013 -

- update to 4.3.2
  * Fixed a bug in which short Unicode input was improperly encoded to
    ASCII when checking whether or not it was the name of a file on
    disk. [bug=1227016]
  * Fixed a crash when a short input contains data not valid in
    filenames. [bug=1232604]
  * Fixed a bug that caused Unicode data put into UnicodeDammit to
    return None instead of the original data. [bug=1214983]
  * Combined two tests to stop a spurious test failure when tests are
    run by nosetests. [bug=1212445]
- update to 4.3.1
  * Fixed yet another problem with the html5lib tree builder, caused by
    html5lib's tendency to rearrange the tree during
    parsing. [bug=1189267]
  * Fixed a bug that caused the optimized version of find_all() to
    return nothing. [bug=1212655]
- update to 4.3.0
  * Instead of converting incoming data to Unicode and feeding it to the
    lxml tree builder in chunks, Beautiful Soup now makes successive
    guesses at the encoding of the incoming data, and tells lxml to
    parse the data as that encoding. Giving lxml more control over the
    parsing process improves performance and avoids a number of bugs and
    issues with the lxml parser which had previously required elaborate
    - An issue in which lxml refuses to parse Unicode strings on some
      systems. [bug=1180527]
    - A returning bug that truncated documents longer than a (very
      small) size. [bug=963880]
    - A returning bug in which extra spaces were added to a document if
      the document defined a charset other than UTF-8. [bug=972466]
    This required a major overhaul of the tree builder architecture. If
    you wrote your own tree builder and didn't tell me, you'll need to
    modify your prepare_markup() method.
  * The UnicodeDammit code that makes guesses at encodings has been
    split into its own class, EncodingDetector. A lot of apparently
    redundant code has been removed from Unicode, Dammit, and some
    undocumented features have also been removed.
  * Beautiful Soup will issue a warning if instead of markup you pass it
    a URL or the name of a file on disk (a common beginner's mistake).
  * A number of optimizations improve the performance of the lxml tree
    builder by about 33%, the html.parser tree builder by about 20%, and
    the html5lib tree builder by about 15%.
  * All find_all calls should now return a ResultSet object. Patch by
    Aaron DeVore. [bug=1194034]

- Update upstream URL

Tue Jun 25 11:52:34 UTC 2013 -

- update to 4.2.1:
 * The default XML formatter will now replace ampersands even if they
   appear to be part of entities. That is, "&lt;" will become
   "&amp;lt;". The old code was left over from Beautiful Soup 3, which
   didn't always turn entities into Unicode characters.
   If you really want the old behavior (maybe because you add new
   strings to the tree, those strings include entities, and you want
   the formatter to leave them alone on output), it can be found in
   EntitySubstitution.substitute_xml_containing_entities(). [bug=1182183]
 * Gave new_string() the ability to create subclasses of
   NavigableString. [bug=1181986]
 * Fixed another bug by which the html5lib tree builder could create a
   disconnected tree. [bug=1182089]
 * The .previous_element of a BeautifulSoup object is now always None,
   not the last element to be parsed. [bug=1182089]
 * Fixed test failures when lxml is not installed. [bug=1181589]
 * html5lib now supports Python 3. Fixed some Python 2-specific
   code in the html5lib test suite. [bug=1181624]
 * The html.parser treebuilder can now handle numeric attributes in
   text when the hexidecimal name of the attribute starts with a
   capital X. Patch by Tim Shirley. [bug=1186242]

Sat May 18 13:30:00 UTC 2013 -

- Update to  4.2.0
    * The method now supports a much wider variety of CSS
        - Added support for the adjacent sibling combinator (+) and the
          general sibling combinator (~). Tests by "liquider". [bug=1082144]
        - The combinators (>, +, and ~) can now combine with any supported
          selector, not just one that selects based on tag name.
        - Added limited support for the "nth-of-type" pseudo-class. Code
          by Sven Slootweg. [bug=1109952]
    * The BeautifulSoup class is now aliased to "_s" and "_soup", making
      it quicker to type the import statement in an interactive session
      The alias may change in the future, so don't use this in code you're
      going to run more than once.
    * Added the 'diagnose' submodule, which includes several useful
      functions for reporting problems and doing tech support.
        - diagnose(data) tries the given markup on every installed parser,
          reporting exceptions and displaying successes. If a parser is not
          installed, diagnose() mentions this fact.
        - lxml_trace(data, html=True) runs the given markup through lxml's
          XML parser or HTML parser, and prints out the parser events as
          they happen. This helps you quickly determine whether a given
          problem occurs in lxml code or Beautiful Soup code.
        - htmlparser_trace(data) is the same thing, but for Python's
          built-in HTMLParser class.
    * In an HTML document, the contents of a <script> or <style> tag will
      no longer undergo entity substitution by default. XML documents work
      the same way they did before. [bug=1085953]
    * Methods like get_text() and properties like .strings now only give
      you strings that are visible in the document--no comments or
      processing commands. [bug=1050164]
    * The prettify() method now leaves the contents of <pre> tags
      alone. [bug=1095654]
    * Fix a bug in the html5lib treebuilder which sometimes created
      disconnected trees. [bug=1039527]
    * Fix a bug in the lxml treebuilder which crashed when a tag included
      an attribute from the predefined "xml:" namespace. [bug=1065617]
    * Fix a bug by which keyword arguments to find_parent() were not
      being passed on. [bug=1126734]
    * Stop a crash when unwisely messing with a tag that's been
      decomposed. [bug=1097699]
    * Now that lxml's segfault on invalid doctype has been fixed, fixed a
      corresponding problem on the Beautiful Soup end that was previously
      invisible. [bug=984936]
    * Fixed an exception when an overspecified CSS selector didn't match
      anything. Code by Stefaan Lippens. [bug=1168167]
