Bug report #9618

Make httplib2 an external dependency

When building packages for Fedora I noticed that currently httplib2 is shipped with QGIS. The Fedora package maintainers patched QGIS to use the httplib2 version from their repository. To bring these packages closer to upstream (and therefore make maintenance easier) I think it would be best to adjust this.
Therefore I'd like to ask if there is any reason for shipping httplib2 internally (and therefore Fedora should just ship with the version that comes with QGIS) or if we can totally drop this from our sources or if it is just required for certain platforms and a new CMAKE option could be introduced (WITH_INTERNAL_HTTPLIB2) which can then be turned on/off depending on the target system.
Victor, I'm assigning this to you for feedback as it seems to be only used in processing.

Add new CMake option: WITH_INTERNAL_HTTPLIB (default True)

If set to False, you have to make sure that the httplib2 package
is available on the target platform

Fix #9618


#1 Updated by Etienne Tourigny about 10 years ago

python dependencies are not always easily installed - especially in mac...
Adding this dependency would require packages for all platforms, although one exists for ubuntu.
Probably easier to add an option for internal vs. external, based on the Fedora patch.
