#176 test_writers.test_docutils_xml.DocutilsXMLTestCase fails

Jakub Wilk

It looks like recent changes to xml.dom.minidom[0][1] broke test_writers.test_docutils_xml.DocutilsXMLTestCase:

FAIL: test_publish (test_writers.test_docutils_xml.DocutilsXMLTestCase)

    Thanks for your bug report. It looks like the test needs either to consider python versions or to be relaxed.
    Can you provide a version test line that could be used to define two variants of the `bodyindents` string
    used in test/test_writers/test_docutils_xml.py?

    Looking at the Debian bugreport http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=645369
    I get the impression that this affects only a patched xml.dom.minidom.toprettyxml
    in Debian's "python2.7" package, version 2.7.2-7.

    Putting this in "Pending" status. For a solution, either the patch needs to be revoked or
    we need a recipe to tell the patched module from the original one.

    Indeed, when I originally wrote the bug report, I didn't realize that Python in Debian is so heavily patched (it's in fact based on Mercurial snapshot).
    Sorry for the noise.

    Applied the patch from the mailing list with some modifications to separate sample strings from the logic.
