5834 <title><filename>distutils</filename> and <filename>distutils3</filename> Now Prevent Fetching Dependencies During the <filename>do_configure</filename> Task</title>
5835
5836 <para>
5837 Previously, it was possible for Python recipes that inherited
5838 the
5839 <link linkend='ref-classes-distutils'><filename>distutils</filename></link>
5840 and
5841 <link linkend='ref-classes-distutils3'><filename>distutils3</filename></link>
5842 classes to fetch code during the
5843 <link linkend='ref-tasks-configure'><filename>do_configure</filename></link>
5844 task to satisfy dependencies mentioned in
5845 <filename>setup.py</filename> if those dependencies were not
5846 provided in the sysroot (i.e. recipes providing the dependencies
5847 were missing from
5848 <link linkend='var-DEPENDS'><filename>DEPENDS</filename></link>).
5849 <note>
5850 This dependency affects classes beyond just the two mentioned
5851 (i.e. <filename>distutils</filename> and
5852 <filename>distutils3</filename>).
5853 Any recipe that inherits <filename>distutils*</filename>
5854 classes are affected.
5855 For example, the <filename>setuptools</filename> and
5856 <filename>setuptools3</filename> recipes are affected since
5857 they inherit the <filename>distutils*</filename> classes.
5858 </note>
5859 </para>
5860
5861 <para>
5862 Fetching these types of dependencies that are not provided in the
5863 sysroot negatively affects the ability to reproduce builds.
5864 This type of fetching is now explicitly disabled.
5865 Consequently, any missing dependencies in Python recipes that
5866 use these classes now result in an error during the
5867 <filename>do_configure</filename> task.

5875 Due to a bug, the kernel configuration audit functionality was
5876 not writing out any resulting warnings during the build.
5877 This issue is now corrected.
