Bug Description

Please sync twextpy 1:0.1~git20161216.0.b90293c-2 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)

A corresponding Ubuntu freeze exception request has already been filed:

Continuous exceptions in log files when NSS directory service is enabled (See This was causing excessive log activity and impacting functionality when using NSS directory service.

The main problem is that there are constructors in NssUserRecord and NssGroupRecord classes, which have different definition compared to the constructions of the interface (parent class). To fix this, I have removed constructors for NssUserRecord and NssGroupRecord classes allowing them to fallback to the constructor of their parent class

[Test Case]
* Install calendarserver 9.2 and twextpy 1:0.1~git20161216.0.b90293c-1
* Set up NSS directory service as described in /usr/share/doc/calendarserver/README.Debian.gz
* Start calendarserver
* Access a calendar using caldav client. Username and password will be that of NSS user.
* You will see errors in calendarserver logs (/var/log/caldavd/error.log)

[Regression Potential]
Can't think of any potential regressions.

This fixes an important bug which causes excessive exceptions and possibly broken functionality with one of the modules of calendarserver. Could the latest version of twextpy from Debian unstable by synced to Ubuntu disco address this issue?

Hello Rahul, apologies for the delay on this; it seems you didn't subscribe the Release Team, and thus this didn't get addressed on time for the release.

Please edit the bug description to follow the SRU bug template, which you can find here:

Once that's done, please resubscribe the Ubuntu Sponsors Team, and this can be uploaded to Disco. You might want to consider preparing uploads for Cosmic and Bionic as well, if it affects those.

sponsored in disco, please let us know if you need also cosmic/bionic, I don't know if this regression is caused by python or something else, and when it has started...

Hello Rahul, or anyone else affected,

Accepted twextpy into disco-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-disco to verification-done-disco. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-disco. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

I have tested with the newly uploaded python-twext package in disco-proposed and the issue is resolved. Tested version is: 1:0.1~git20161216.0.b90293c- .

Also, it has been more than 7 days since the package has been uploaded to disco. So I belive it should be now ready to be released to -updates.

I am unable to update the tag to "verification-done-disco". Request you to do it on my behalf.

done, thanks for verifying and saying that bionic/cosmic are not affected

Quoting the email:
* Issue is fixed in disco

* Unable to reproduce it in cosmic or bionic

Probably bug occurs only with calendarserver 9.2 (the version in disco)?
bionic and cosmic have calendarserver 9.1.
