Bug#945532: RFP: python-urllib-gssapi -- GSSAPI over HTTP Negotiate/SPNEGO support for urllib/urllib2

Sam Morris
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : python-urllib-gssapi
  Version         : 1.0.1
* URL             : https://github.com/pythongssapi/urllib-gssapi/
* License         : Apache License 2.0
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : GSSAPI over HTTP Negotiate/SPNEGO support for urllib/urllib2

urllib_gssapi is a urllib backend for GSSAPI/SPNEGO authentication to
HTTP servers.

urllib_gssapi replaces urllib_kerberos, and behaves the same way - just
rename to HTTPSPNEGOAuthHandler.

The package enhances ansible, which relies on it in order to be able to
use Kerberos authentication when talking to web servers (e.g., a
FreeIPA server).
