Description Rolf Pedersen 2018-04-22 21:12:39 CEST
I tried to use googlecl with the calendar service and youtube service.  The authentication step doesn't work.  Searching at google brought me to a statement that google doesn't support googlecl anymore, which seems likely:

"googlecl is not supported by google anymore. They simply didn't add oauth2 support to googlecl and dropped support for oauth1 everywhere. If you ever come across something that could replace googlecl please share that info. – Krystian Jan 27 '17 at 12:55"



"8 June 2015: GoogleCL is currently broken due to the OAuth1 turndown, and likely to remain so. Thanks for your support over the years, and apologies for the lack of prior notice."


[rolf@z68x ~]$ rpm -q --whatrequires googlecl
no package requires googlecl

Should googlcl be removed from the distro?

Assigning to all packagers collectively, since there is no registered maintainer for this package.

Yes it should be removed, but it can only be removed from Cauldron.

Version: 6 => Cauldron
