Description (last modified by Remy Blank)

When email notification is attempted to be sent with Python 2.6 the following exception is generated:

2009-02-20 20:29:35,839 Trac[web_ui] ERROR: Failure sending notification on change to ticket #39:

TypeError: character mapping must return integer, None or unicode

This is related to bug in HMAC library: http://bugs.python.org/issue5285

But login and password should not be sent to HMAC as unicode strings anyway.

I'd like to look into that, Manu, I hope you don't mind.

Nope. Feel free to fix any ticket related to the notification as well. I'm sorry I have no time to work on Trac for now ;-(

Keywords: python26 added
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Fixed in [7915] by encoding user_name and password as utf-8 prior to passing them to server.login().

Thanks Victor for the precise bug report.
