Name        : python-oauth2
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 1.5.211
Release     : 7.fc20
URL         : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/oauth2/
Summary     : Python support for improved oauth
Description :
Oauth2 was originally forked from Leah Culver and Andy Smith's oauth.py
code. Some of the tests come from a fork by Vic Fryzel, while a revamped
Request class and more tests were merged in from Mark Paschal's fork. A
number of notable differences exist between this code and its forefathers:

- 100% unit test coverage.
- The DataStore object has been completely ripped out. While creating unit
  tests for the library I found several substantial bugs with the
  implementation and confirmed with Andy Smith that it was never fully
- Classes are no longer prefixed with OAuth.
- The Request class now extends from dict.
- The library is likely no longer compatible with Python 2.3.
- The Client class works and extends from httplib2. It's a thin wrapper
  that handles automatically signing any normal HTTP request you might
  wish to make.
