* Tue Oct 31 2017
  - run tests only when the appropriate pythons are available
* Mon Sep 18 2017
  - spec changes:
    - add fdupes
  - update to 4.0.0:
    Features added:
    - The ElementPath implementation is now compiled using Cython,
      which speeds up the .find*() methods quite significantly.
    - The modules lxml.builder, lxml.html.diff and lxml.html.clean
      are also compiled using Cython in order to speed them up.
    - xmlfile() supports async coroutines using async with and await.
    - iterwalk() has a new method skip_subtree() that prevents
      walking into the descendants of the current element.
    - RelaxNG.from_rnc_string() accepts a base_url argument to allow
      relative resource lookups.
    - The XSLT result object has a new method .write_output(file)
      that serialises output data into a file according to the
      <xsl:output> configuration.
    Bugs fixed:
    - GH#251: HTML comments were handled incorrectly by the
      soupparser. Patch by mozbugbox.
    - LP#1654544: The html5parser no longer passes the useChardet
      option if the input is a Unicode string, unless explicitly
      requested. When parsing files, the default is to enable it when
      a URL or file path is passed (because the file is then opened in
      binary mode), and to disable it when reading from a file(-like) object.
      Note: This is a backwards incompatible change of the default configuration.
      If your code parses byte strings/streams and depends on character
      detection, please pass the option guess_charset=True explicitly, which
      already worked in older lxml versions.
    - LP#1703810: etree.fromstring() failed to parse UTF-32 data with BOM.
    - LP#1526522: Some RelaxNG errors were not reported in the error log.
    - LP#1567526: Empty and plain text input raised a TypeError in soupparser.
    - LP#1710429: Uninitialised variable usage in HTML diff.
    - LP#1415643: The closing tags context manager in xmlfile() could continue
      to output end tags even after writing failed with an exception.
    - LP#1465357: xmlfile.write() now accepts and ignores None as input argument.
    - Compilation under Py3.7-pre failed due to a modified function signature.
    Other changes:
    - The main module source files were renamed from lxml.*.pyx to plain *.pyx
      (e.g. etree.pyx) to simplify their handling in the build process. Care was
      taken to keep the old header files as fallbacks for code that compiles
      against the public C-API of lxml, but it might still be worth validating
      that third-party code does not notice this change.
* Mon Sep 11 2017
  - Ensure neutrality of description. Adjust RPM categories.
* Fri Jul 28 2017
  - update to 3.8.0
    Features added
    - ElementTree.write() has a new option doctype that writes out
      a doctype string before the serialisation, in the same way as
    - GH#220: xmlfile allows switching output methods at an element
      level. Patch by Burak Arslan.
    - LP#1595781, GH#240: added a PyCapsule Python API and C-level
      API for passing externally generated libxml2 documents into
    - GH#244: error log entries have a new property path with an
      XPath expression (if known, None otherwise) that points to the
      tree element responsible for the error. Patch by Bob Kline.
    - The namespace prefix mapping that can be used in ElementPath
      now injects a default namespace when passing a None prefix.
    Bugs fixed
    - GH#238: Character escapes were not hex-encoded in the xmlfile
      serialiser. Patch by matejcik.
    - GH#229: fix for externally created XML documents.
      Patch by Theodore Dubois.
    - LP#1665241, GH#228: Form data handling in lxml.html no longer
      strips the option values specified in form attributes but only
      the text values. Patch by Ashish Kulkarni.
    - LP#1551797: revert previous fix for XSLT error logging as it
      breaks multi-threaded XSLT processing.
    - LP#1673355, GH#233: fromstring() html5parser failed to parse
      byte strings.
    Other changes
    - The previously undocumented docstring option in
      ElementTree.write() produces a deprecation warning and will
      eventually be removed.
  - enable source url for pdf doc
  - remove patch lxml-fix-attribute-quoting.patch because it is now
    in upstream
* Tue Apr 11 2017
  - temporarily disable Source URL for pdf doc (it became unavailable)
  - lxml-fix-attribute-quoting.patch - stabilize attribute entity encoding
    across platforms
  - force-regenerate C code from Cython sources
* Wed Mar 08 2017
  - Version 3.7.3
    * GH#218 was ineffective in Python 3.
    * GH#222: lxml.html.submit_form() failed in Python 3. Patch by Jakub Wilk.
    * Work around installation problems in recent Python 2.7 versions
    due to FTP download failures.
    * GH#219: ``xmlfile.element()`` was not properly quoting attribute values.
    Patch by Burak Arslan.
    * GH#218: ``xmlfile.element()`` was not properly escaping text content of
    script/style tags.  Patch by Burak Arslan.
    * GH#217: ``XMLSyntaxError`` now behaves more like its ``SyntaxError``
    baseclass.  Patch by Philipp A.
    * GH#216: ``HTMLParser()`` now supports the same ``collect_ids`` parameter
    as ``XMLParser()``.  Patch by Burak Arslan.
    * GH#210: Allow specifying a serialisation method in ``xmlfile.write()``.
    Patch by Burak Arslan.
    * GH#203: New option ``default_doctype`` in ``HTMLParser`` that allows
    disabling the automatic doctype creation.  Patch by Shadab Zafar.
    * GH#201: Calling the method ``.set('attrname')`` without value argument
    (or ``None``) on HTML elements creates an attribute without value that
    serialises like ``<div attrname></div>``.  Patch by Daniel Holth.
    * GH#197: Ignore form input fields in ``form_values()`` when they are
    marked as ``disabled`` in HTML.  Patch by Kristian Klemon.
    * GH#206: File name and line number were missing from XSLT error messages.
    Patch by Marcus Brinkmann.
    * Log entries no longer allow anything but plain string objects as message text
    and file name.
    * ``zlib`` is included in the list of statically built libraries.
    * GH#204, LP#1614693: build fix for MacOS-X.

* Mon Dec 19 2016
  - update for multipython build
* Tue Aug 16 2016
  - update to 3.6.1 (FATE #321014):
    * Separate option ``inline_style`` for Cleaner that only removes ``style``
      attributes instead of all styles.
    * Windows build support for Python 3.5.
    * Exclude ``file`` fields from ``FormElement.form_values`` (as browsers do).
    * Try to provide base URL from ``Resolver.resolve_string()``.
    * More accurate float serialisation in ``objectify.FloatElement``.
    * Repair XSLT error logging.
* Wed Jul 13 2016
  - update to 3.6.0:
    * Static builds honour FTP proxy configurations when downloading
      the external libs.
    * Now supports (only) version 5.x and later of PyPy.
    * Soupparser failed to process entities in Python 3.x.
    * Rare encoding related `TypeError` on import was fixed.
    * Direct support for `.rnc` files in `RelaxNG()` if `rnc2rng`
      is installed.
* Mon Feb 01 2016
  - update to version 3.5.0:
    * Unicode string results failed XPath queries in PyPy.
    * LP#1497051: HTML target parser failed to terminate on exceptions
      and continued parsing instead.
    * Deprecated API usage in doctestcompare.
  - changes from version 3.5.0b1:
    * cleanup_namespaces() accepts a new argument keep_ns_prefixes that
      does not remove definitions of the provided prefix-namespace
      mapping from the tree.
    * cleanup_namespaces() accepts a new argument top_nsmap that moves
      definitions of the provided prefix-namespace mapping to the top of
      the tree.
    * LP#1490451: Element objects gained a cssselect() method as known
      from lxml.html. Patch by Simon Sapin.
    * API functions and methods behave and look more like Python
      functions, which allows introspection on them etc. One side effect
      to be aware of is that the functions now bind as methods when
      assigned to a class variable. A quick fix is to wrap them in
      staticmethod() (as for normal Python functions).
    * ISO-Schematron support gained an option error_finder that allows
      passing a filter function for picking validation errors from
    * LP#1243600: Elements in lxml.html gained a classes property that
      provides a set-like interface to the class attribute. Original
      patch by masklinn.
    * LP#1341964: The soupparser now handles DOCTYPE declarations,
      comments and processing instructions outside of the root
      element. Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#1421512: The docinfo of a tree was made editable to allow
      setting and removing the public ID and system ID of the
      DOCTYPE. Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#1442427: More work-arounds for quirks and bugs in pypy and
    * lxml.html.soupparser now uses BeautifulSoup version 4 instead of
      version 3 if available.
    * Memory errors that occur during tree adaptations (e.g. moving
      subtrees to foreign documents) could leave the tree in a crash
      prone state.
    * Calling process_children() in an XSLT extension element without an
      output_parent argument failed with a TypeError. Fix by Jens
    * GH#162: Image data in HTML data URLs is considered safe and no
      longer removed by lxml.html.clean JavaScript cleaner.
    * GH#166: Static build could link libraries in wrong order.
    * GH#172: Rely a bit more on libxml2 for encoding detection rather
      than rolling our own in some cases. Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * GH#159: Validity checks for names and string content were
      tightened to detect the use of illegal characters early. Patch by
      Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#1421921: Comments/PIs before the DOCTYPE declaration were not
      serialised. Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#659367: Some HTML DOCTYPE declarations were not
      serialised. Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#1238503: lxml.doctestcompare is now consistent with stdlib's
      doctest in how it uses + and - to refer to unexpected and missing
    * Empty prefixes are explicitly rejected when a namespace mapping is
      used with ElementPath to avoid hiding bugs in user code.
    * Several problems with PyPy were fixed by switching to Cython 0.23.
* Wed Sep 02 2015
  - Add devel package with header files in devel package, so that others can use
    C API (needed for dm.xmlsec.binding)
* Mon Jul 27 2015
  - Update to version 3.4.4
    Bugs fixed:
    * An ElementTree compatibility test added in lxml 3.4.3 that failed in
      Python 3.4+ was removed again.
  - Aligned dependency versions with PyPI ones
* Wed Apr 22 2015
  - Drop lxml-dont-depend-on-URL-formatting-in-test.patch, merged upstream
* Wed Apr 22 2015
  - Update to 3.4.3:
    * Expression cache in ElementPath was ignored.  Fix by Changaco.
    * LP#1426868: Passing a default namespace and a prefixed namespace mapping
      as nsmap into ``xmlfile.element()`` raised a ``TypeError``.
    * LP#1421927: DOCTYPE system URLs were incorrectly quoted when containing
      double quotes.  Patch by Olli Pottonen.
    * LP#1419354: meta-redirect URLs were incorrectly processed by
      ``iterlinks()`` if preceded by whitespace.
    * LP#1415907: Crash when creating an XMLSchema from a non-root element
      of an XML document.
    * LP#1369362: HTML cleaning failed when hitting processing instructions
      with pseudo-attributes.
    * ``CDATA()`` wrapped content was rejected for tail text.
    * CDATA sections were not serialised as tail text of the top-level element.
    * New ``htmlfile`` HTML generator to accompany the incremental ``xmlfile``
      serialisation API.  Patch by Burak Arslan.
    * ``lxml.sax.ElementTreeContentHandler`` did not initialise its superclass.
* Tue Nov 04 2014
  - Update to 3.4.0
    * Features added
    * * xmlfile(buffered=False) disables output buffering and flushes the
      content after each API operation (starting/ending element blocks or
      writes). A new method xf.flush() can alternatively be used to
      explicitly flush the output.
    * * lxml.html.document_fromstring has a new option ensure_head_body=True
      which will add an empty head and/or body element to the result
      document if missing.
    * * lxml.html.iterlinks now returns links inside meta refresh tags.
    * * New XMLParser option collect_ids=False to disable ID hash table
      creation. This can substantially speed up parsing of documents with
      many different IDs that are not used.
    * * The parser uses per-document hash tables for XML IDs. This reduces
      the load of the global parser dict and speeds up parsing for
      documents with many different IDs.
    * * ElementTree.getelementpath(element) returns a structural ElementPath
      expression for the given element, which can be used for lookups later.
    * * xmlfile() accepts a new argument close=True to close file(-like)
      objects after writing to them. Before, xmlfile() only closed the file
      if it had opened it internally.
    * * Allow "bytearray" type for ASCII text input.
    * Other changes
    * * LP#400588: decoding errors have become hard errors even in recovery
      mode. Previously, they could lead to an internal tree representation
      in a mixed encoding state, which lead to very late errors or even
      silently incorrect behaviour during tree traversal or serialisation.
    * * Requires Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 or later. No longer supports Python 2.4,
      2.5 and 3.1, use lxml 3.3.x for those.
    * * Requires libxml2 2.7.0 or later and libxslt 1.1.23 or later, use lxml
      3.3.x with older versions.
  - Add updatream patch lxml-dont-depend-on-URL-formatting-in-test.patch
    * fix test
  - Changes in 3.3.6
    * Bugs fixed
    * * Prevent tree cycle creation when adding Elements as siblings.
    * * LP#1361948: crash when deallocating Element siblings without parent.
    * * LP#1354652: crash when traversing internally loaded documents in XSLT
      extension functions.
* Thu Apr 24 2014

    - The internal classes _LogEntry and _Attrib can no longer be subclassed
      from Python code.
* Mon Mar 03 2014
  - Update to version 3.3.2:
    - The properties resolvers and version, as well as the methods
      set_element_class_lookup() and makeelement(), were lost from iterparse
    - LP#1222132: instances of XMLSchema, Schematron and RelaxNG did not clear
      their local error_log before running a validation.
    - LP#1238500: lxml.doctestcompare mixed up "expected" and "actual" in
      attribute values.
    - Some file I/O tests were failing in MS-Windows due to incorrect temp file
      usage. Initial patch by Gabi Davar.
    - LP#910014: duplicate IDs in a document were not reported by DTD
    - LP#1185332: tostring(method="html") did not use HTML serialisation
      semantics for trailing tail text. Initial patch by Sylvain Viollon.
    - LP#1281139: .attrib value of Comments lost its mutation methods in 3.3.0.
      Even though it is empty and immutable, it should still provide the same
      interface as that returned for Elements.
* Fri Feb 28 2014
  - Run tests during build
* Sat Feb 22 2014
  - Update to version 3.3.1:
    * * Features added
    * * Bugs fixed
    - LP#1014290: HTML documents parsed with parser.feed() failed to
      find elements during tag iteration.
    - LP#1273709: Building in PyPy failed due to missing support for
      PyUnicode_Compare() and PyByteArray_*() in PyPy's C-API.
    - LP#1274413: Compilation in MSVC failed due to missing "stdint.h"
      standard header file.
    - LP#1274118: iterparse() failed to parse BOM prefixed files.
    * * Other changes
    See also
* Fri Feb 07 2014
  - Require python-cssselect, it was refactored into a standalone module
* Fri Jan 31 2014
  - Fix requires
* Sun Jan 26 2014
  - Update to version 3.3.0:
    * * Features added
    * * Bugs fixed
    - The heuristic that distinguishes file paths from URLs was
      tightened to produce less false negatives.
  - Changes from 3.3.0beta5
    * * Features added
    - The PEP 393 unicode parsing support gained a fallback for
      wchar strings which might still be somewhat common on Windows systems.
    * * Bugs fixed
    - Several error handling problems were fixed throughout the code base
      that could previously lead to exceptions being silently swallowed or
      not properly reported.
    - The C-API function appendChild() is now deprecated as it does not
      propagate exceptions (its return type is void). The new function
      appendChildToElement() was added as a safe replacement.
    - Passing a string into fromstringlist() raises an exception instead of
      parsing the string character by character.
    * * Other changes

* Mon May 13 2013
  - update to 3.2.1:
    * The methods ``apply_templates()`` and ``process_children()`` of XSLT
    extension elements have gained two new boolean options ``elements_only``
    and ``remove_blank_text`` that discard either all strings or whitespace-only
    strings from the result list.
    * When moving Elements to another tree, the namespace cleanup mechanism
    no longer drops namespace prefixes from attributes for which it finds
    a default namespace declaration, to prevent them from appearing as
    unnamespaced attributes after serialisation.
    * Returning non-type objects from a custom class lookup method could lead
    to a crash.
    * Instantiating and using subtypes of Comments and ProcessingInstructions
* Mon Apr 29 2013
  - update to 3.2.0:
    * Leading whitespace could change the behaviour of the string
    parsing functions in ``lxml.html``.
    * LP#599318: The string parsing functions in ``lxml.html`` are more robust
    in the face of uncommon HTML content like framesets or missing body tags.
    Patch by Stefan Seelmann.
    * LP#712941: I/O errors while trying to access files with paths that contain
    non-ASCII characters could raise ``UnicodeDecodeError`` instead of properly
    reporting the ``IOError``.
    * LP#673205: Parsing from in-memory strings disabled network access in the
    default parser and made subsequent attempts to parse from a URL fail.
    * LP#971754: lxml.html.clean appends 'nofollow' to 'rel' attributes instead
    of overwriting the current value.
    * LP#715687: lxml.html.clean no longer discards scripts that are explicitly
    allowed by the user provided whitelist.  Patch by Christine Koppelt.

    - Illegal memory access during cleanup in incremental xmlfile writer.
    * * Other changes
    - The externally useless class lxml.etree._BaseParser was removed from the module dict.
    * 3.1.0 (2013-02-10)
    * * Features added
    - GH#89: lxml.html.clean allows overriding the set of attributes that it considers 'safe'.
      Patch by Francis Devereux.
    * * Bugs fixed
    - LP#1104370: copy.copy(el.attrib) raised an exception. It now returns a copy of the
      attributes as a plain Python dict.
    - GH#95: When used with namespace prefixes, the el.find*() methods always used the first
      namespace mapping that was provided for each path expression instead of using the one that
    was actually passed in for the current run.
    - LP#1092521, GH#91: Fix undefined C symbol in Python runtimes compiled without threading
      support. Patch by Ulrich Seidl.
    * 3.1beta1 (2012-12-21)
    * * Features added
    - New build-time option --with-unicode-strings for Python 2 that makes the API always
      return Unicode strings for names and text instead of byte strings for plain ASCII content.
    - New incremental XML file writing API etree.xmlfile().
    - E factory in lxml.objectify is callable to simplify the creation of tags with
      non-identifier names without having to resort to getattr().
    * * Bugs fixed
    - When starting from a non-namespaced element in lxml.objectify, searching for a
      child without explicitly specifying a namespace incorrectly found namespaced
    elements with the requested local name, instead of restricting the search to
    non-namespaced children.
    - GH#85: Deprecation warnings were fixed for Python 3.x.
    - GH#33: lxml.html.fromstring() failed to accept bytes input in Py3.
    - LP#1080792: Static build of libxml2 2.9.0 failed due to missing file.
    * * Other changes
    - The externally useless class _ObjectifyElementMakerCaller was removed from the
      module API of lxml.objectify.
    - LP#1075622: lxml.builder is faster for adding text to elements with many children.
      Patch by Anders Hammarquist.

    * * Bugs fixed
    - LP#1065924: Element proxies could disappear during garbage collection in PyPy
      without proper cleanup.
    - GH#71: Failure to work with libxml2 2.6.x.
    - LP#1065139: static MacOS-X build failed in Py3.
    * 3.0 (2012-10-08)
    * * Bugs fixed
    - End-of-file handling was incorrect in iterparse() when reading from a low-level
      C file stream and failed in libxml2 2.9.0 due to its improved consistency checks.
    * * Other changes
    - The build no longer uses Cython by default unless the generated C files are
      missing. To use Cython, pass the option "--with-cython". To ignore the fatal build
    error when Cython is required but not available (e.g. to run special
    commands that do not actually run a build), pass "--without-cython".
    * 3.0beta1 (2012-09-26)
    * * Features added
    - Python level access to (optional) libxml2 memory debugging features to simplify
      debugging of memory leaks etc.
    * * Bugs fixed
    - Fix a memory leak in XPath by switching to Cython 0.17.1.
    - Some tests were adapted to work with PyPy.
    * * Other changes
    - The code was adapted to work with the upcoming libxml2 2.9.0 release.
    * 3.0alpha2 (2012-08-23)
    * * Features added
    - The .iter() method of elements now accepts tag arguments like "{*}name" to search
      for elements with a given local name in any namespace. With this addition, all
      combinations of wildcards now work as expected: "{ns}name", "{}name", "{*}name",
    "{ns}*", "{}*" and "{*}*". Note that "name" is equivalent to "{}name", but "*" is
      "{*}*". The same change applies to the .getiterator(), .itersiblings(), .iterancestors(),
    .iterdescendants(), .iterchildren() and .itertext() methods;the strip_attributes(),
    strip_elements() and strip_tags() functions as well as the iterparse() class.
    Patch by Simon Sapin.
    - C14N allows specifying the inclusive prefixes to be promoted to top-level during
      exclusive serialisation.
    * * Bugs fixed
    - Passing long Unicode strings into the feed() parser interface failed to read the entire string.
    * 3.0alpha1 (2012-07-31)
    * * Features added
    - Initial support for building in PyPy (through cpyext).
    - DTD objects gained an API that allows read access to their declarations.
    - gained support for parsing line-by-line (e.g. from grep output) and
      for surrounding the output with a new root tag.
    - E-factory in lxml.builder accepts subtypes of known data types (such as string
      subtypes) when building elements around them.
    - Tree iteration and iterparse() with a selective tag argument supports passing a
      set of tags. Tree nodes will be returned by the iterators if they match any of the tags.
    * * Bugs fixed
    - The .find*() methods in lxml.objectify no longer use XPath internally, which makes
      them faster in many cases (especially when short circuiting after a single or
    couple of elements) and fixes some behavioural differences compared to lxml.etree.
    Note that this means that they no longer support arbitrary XPath expressions but
    only the subset that the ElementPath language supports. The previous implementation
    was also redundant with the normal XPath support, which can be used as a replacement.
    - el.find('*') could accidentally return a comment or processing instruction that
      happened to be in the wrong spot. (Same for the other .find*() methods.)
    - The error logging is less intrusive and avoids a global setup where possible.
    - Fixed undefined names in html5lib parser.
    - did not work in Python 3.
    - Element.attrib.update() did not accept an attrib of another Element as parameter.
    - For subtypes of ElementBase that make the .text or .tail properties immutable (as in
      objectify, for example), inserting text when creating Elements through the E-Factory
    feature of the class constructor would fail with an exception, stating that the text
    cannot be modified.
    * * Other changes
    - The code base was overhauled to properly use 'const' where the API of libxml2 anders
      libxslt requests it. This also has an impact on the public C-API of lxml itself, as
    defined in etreepublic.pxd, as well as the provided declarations in the lxml/includes/
    directory. Code that uses these declarations may have to be adapted. On the plus side,
    this fixes several C compiler warnings, also for user code, thus making it easier to
    spot real problems again.
    - The functionality of "lxml.cssselect" was moved into a separate PyPI package called
      "cssselect". To continue using it, you must install that package separately. The
    "lxml.cssselect" module is still available and provides the same interface, provided
    the "cssselect" package can be imported at runtime.
    - Element attributes passed in as an attrib dict or as keyword arguments are now sorted
      by (namespaced) name before being created to make their order predictable for
    serialisation and iteration. Note that adding or deleting attributes afterwards does
    not take that order into account, i.e. setting a new attribute appends it after the
    existing ones.
    - Several classes that are for internal use only were removed from the lxml.etree module
      dict: _InputDocument, _ResolverRegistry, _ResolverContext, _BaseContext, _ExsltRegExp,
    _IterparseContext, _TempStore, _ExceptionContext, __ContentOnlyElement, _AttribIterator,
    _NamespaceRegistry, _ClassNamespaceRegistry, _FunctionNamespaceRegistry,
    _XPathFunctionNamespaceRegistry, _ParserDictionaryContext, _FileReaderContext,
    _ParserContext, _PythonSaxParserTarget, _TargetParserContext, _ReadOnlyProxy,
    _ReadOnlyPIProxy, _ReadOnlyEntityProxy, _ReadOnlyElementProxy, _OpaqueNodeWrapper,
    _OpaqueDocumentWrapper, _ModifyContentOnlyProxy, _ModifyContentOnlyPIProxy,
    _ModifyContentOnlyEntityProxy, _AppendOnlyElementProxy, _SaxParserContext,
    _FilelikeWriter, _ParserSchemaValidationContext, _XPathContext, _XSLTResolverContext,
    _XSLTContext, _XSLTQuotedStringParam
    - Several internal classes can no longer be inherited from: _InputDocument,
      _ResolverRegistry, _ExsltRegExp, _ElementUnicodeResult, _IterparseContext, _TempStore,
    _AttribIterator, _ClassNamespaceRegistry, _XPathFunctionNamespaceRegistry,
    _ParserDictionaryContext, _FileReaderContext, _PythonSaxParserTarget,
    _TargetParserContext, _ReadOnlyPIProxy, _ReadOnlyEntityProxy, _OpaqueDocumentWrapper,
    _ModifyContentOnlyPIProxy, _ModifyContentOnlyEntityProxy, _AppendOnlyElementProxy,
    _FilelikeWriter, _ParserSchemaValidationContext, _XPathContext, _XSLTResolverContext,
    _XSLTContext, _XSLTQuotedStringParam, _XSLTResultTree, _XSLTProcessingInstruction
    * 2.3.6 (2012-09-28)
    * * Bugs fixed
    - Passing long Unicode strings into the feed() parser interface failed to read the
      entire string.
    * 2.3.5 (2012-07-31)
    * * Bugs fixed
    - Crash when merging text nodes in element.remove().
    - Crash in sax/target parser when reporting empty doctype.
* Wed Jan 02 2013
  - Fix building on SLES
* Wed Dec 19 2012
  - The doc sub-package is noarch
* Thu Nov 15 2012
  - BuildRequire libxml2-devel instead of pkconfi() to allow building
    on SLE_11_SP2
* Mon Jun 04 2012
  - Update to version 2.3.4; bugs fixed:
    * Crash due to race condition when errors (or user messages) occur during
      threaded XSLT processing.
    * XSLT stylesheet compilation could ignore compilation errors.
  - Exclude etree_defs.h from RPM
* Thu May 24 2012
  - python3 package added
  - minor spec adjustments
* Fri Mar 09 2012
  - Update to version 2.3.3:
    * lxml.html.tostring() gained new serialisation options with_tail and doctype.
    * Fixed a crash when using iterparse() for HTML parsing and requesting start events.
    * Fixed parsing of more selectors in cssselect. Whitespace before
      pseudo-elements and pseudo-classes is significant as it is a descendant
      combinator. "E :pseudo" should parse the same as "E *:pseudo", not "E:pseudo".
    * lxml.html.diff no longer raises an exception when hitting 'img' tags without 'src' attribute.
  - Changes from version 2.3.2:
    * lxml.objectify.deannotate() has a new boolean option cleanup_namespaces to
      remove the objectify namespace declarations (and generally clean up the
      namespace declarations) after removing the type annotations.
    * lxml.objectify gained its own SubElement() function as a copy of
      etree.SubElement to avoid an otherwise redundant import of lxml.etree on the user side.
    * Fixed the "descendant" bug in cssselect a second time
    * Fixed parsing of some selectors in cssselect.
  - Changes from version 2.3.1:
    * New option kill_tags in lxml.html.clean to remove specific tags and their
      content (i.e. their whole subtree).
    * pi.get() and pi.attrib on processing instructions to parse
      pseudo-attributes from the text content of processing instructions.
    * lxml.get_include() returns a list of include paths that can be used to
      compile external C code against lxml.etree.
    * Resolver.resolve_file() takes an additional option close_file that
      configures if the file(-like) object will be closed after reading or not.
    * HTML cleaning didn't remove 'data:' links.
    * The html5lib parser integration now uses the 'official' implementation in
      html5lib itself, which makes it work with newer releases of the library.
    * In lxml.sax, endElementNS() could incorrectly reject a plain tag name when
      the corresponding start event inferred the same plain tag name to be in the default namespace.
    * When an open file-like object is passed into parse() or iterparse(), the
      parser will no longer close it after use.
    * Assertion error in lxml.html.cleaner when discarding top-level elements.
    * In lxml.cssselect, use the xpath 'A//B' (short for
      'A/descendant-or-self::node()/B') instead of 'A/descendant::B' for the css
      descendant selector ('A B').
    * In lxml.html, non-selected <option> tags no longer show up in the collected form values.
    * Adding/removing <option> values to/from a multiple select form field
      properly selects them and unselects them.

  - Update to 2.3 (2011-03-03):
    Features added
    * When looking for children, lxml.objectify takes '{}tag' as
      meaning an empty namespace, as opposed to the parent namespace.
    Bugs fixed
    * When finished reading from a file-like object, the parser
      immediately calls its close() method.
    * When finished parsing, iterparse() immediately closes the input
    * Work-around for libxml2 bug that can leave the HTML parser in a
      non-functional state after parsing a severly broken document (fixed
      in libxml2 2.7.8).
    * marque tag in HTML cleanup code is correctly named marquee.
* Mon Dec 06 2010

      node (e.g. in a template matching on "/").
    Bugs fixed
    * Crash in XPath evaluation when reading smart strings from a
      document other than the original context document.
    * Support recent versions of html5lib by not requiring its
      XHTMLParser in anymore.
    * Manually instantiating the custom element classes in
      lxml.objectify could crash.
    * Invalid XML text characters were not rejected by the API when
      they appeared in unicode strings directly after non-ASCII characters.
    * lxml.html.open_http_urllib() did not work in Python 3.
    * The functions strip_tags() and strip_elements() in lxml.etree
      did not remove all occurrences of a tag in all cases.
    * Crash in XSLT extension elements when the XSLT context
      node is not an element.
  - Fixed .changes file to match order from factory
* Fri Nov 13 2009
  - Updated to 2.2.4 (2009-11-11):
    Features added
    * None
    Bugs fixed
    * Static build of libxml2/libxslt was broken.
* Fri Oct 30 2009
  - Updated to 2.2.3 (2009-10-30):
    Features added
    Bugs fixed
    * The resolve_entities option did not work in the incremental
      feed parser.
    * Looking up and deleting attributes without a namespace could
      hit a namespaced attribute of the same name instead.
    * Late errors during calls to SubElement() (e.g. attribute related
      ones) could leave a partially initialised element in the tree.
    * Modifying trees that contain parsed entity references could result
      in an infinite loop.
    * ObjectifiedElement.__setattr__ created an empty-string child
      element when the attribute value was rejected as a non-unicode/non-ascii string
    * Syntax errors in lxml.cssselect could result in misleading error messages.
    * Invalid syntax in CSS expressions could lead to an infinite loop
      in the parser of lxml.cssselect.
    * CSS special character escapes were not properly handled in lxml.cssselect.
    * CSS Unicode escapes were not properly decoded in lxml.cssselect.
    * Select options in HTML forms that had no explicit value attribute
      were not handled correctly. The HTML standard dictates that their value
      is defined by their text content. This is now supported by lxml.html.
    * XPath raised a TypeError when finding CDATA sections. This is now fully supported.
    * Calling help(lxml.objectify) didn't work at the prompt.
    * The ElementMaker in lxml.objectify no longer defines the default namespaces
      when annotation is disabled.
    * Feed parser failed to honour the 'recover' option on parse errors.
    * Diverting the error logging to Python's logging system was broken.

  - Updated to 2.2.2 (2009-06-21):
    Features added
    * New helper functions strip_attributes(), strip_elements(),
      strip_tags() in lxml.etree to remove attributes/subtrees/tags
      from a subtree.
    Bugs fixed
    * Namespace cleanup on subtree insertions could result in missing
      namespace declarations (and potentially crashes) if the element
      defining a namespace was deleted and the namespace was not used
      by the top element of the inserted subtree but only in deeper
    * Raising an exception from a parser target callback didn't always
      terminate the parser.
    * Only {true, false, 1, 0} are accepted as the lexical representation
      for BoolElement ({True, False, T, F, t, f} not any more),
      restoring lxml <= 2.0 behaviour.
* Wed Jun 03 2009
  - Updated to 2.2.1:
    Features added:
    * Injecting default attributes into a document during XML Schema
      validation (also at parse time).
    * Pass huge_tree parser option to disable parser security restrictions
      imposed by libxml2 2.7.
    Bugs fixed
    * The script for statically building libxml2 and libxslt didn't work in Py3.
    * XMLSchema() also passes invalid schema documents on to libxml2 for
      parsing (which could lead to a crash before release 2.6.24).
    Full list:

    Features added:
    - Allow lxml.html.diff.htmldiff to accept Element objects,
      not just HTML strings.
    - XSLT.strparam() class method to wrap quoted string parameters
      that require escaping.
    - Support strings and instantiable Element classes as child
      arguments to the constructor of custom Element classes.
    - GZip compression support for serialisation to files and
      file-like objects.
    - Support for standalone flag in XML declaration through
      tree.docinfo.standalone and by passing standalone=True/False
      on serialisation.
    Bugs fixed:
    - Memory leak in XPath evaluators.
    - Setting the base attribute in lxml.objectify from a unicode
      string failed.
    - Crash when parsing indented XML in one thread and merging
      it with other documents parsed in another thread.
    - Crash when parsing an XML Schema with external imports from
      a filename.
    - iter_links (and related link-rewriting functions) in lxml.html
      would interpret CSS like url("link") incorrectly (treating the
      quotation marks as part of the link).
    - Failing import on systems that have an io module.
    - Potential memory leak on exception handling. This was due
      to a problem in Cython, not lxml itself.
    - Crash when using an XPath evaluator in multiple threads.
    - Fixed missing whitespace before Link:... in lxml.html.diff.
    Other changes
    - The global error log (which is copied into the exception log)
      is now local to a thread, which fixes some race conditions.
    - More robust error handling on serialisation.
    - Export lxml.html.parse.
