#18457 closed Bug (fixed)

Failed test: pyyaml serializer,

Reported by: jpaugh64 Owned by: claudep
Component: Core (Serialization) Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords: unicode
Cc: jpaugh64 Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The patch introduced by commit 4a10308 causes the pyyaml deserializer to fail the test suite. The error is caused by trying to wrap a unicode string in an io.BytesIO. The relevant bits are in tests/regressiontests/serializers_regress/ @line 408 and in django/core/serializers/ @line 51.

I just added a patch that fixes the bug. The problem was caused because pyyaml.Deserializer assumed it was dealing with a bytestring, but tested for basestring instead--causing it to try wrapping unicode objects in an io.BytesIO instance. (The bug wasn't uncovered until commit 4a10308 caused all strings in the test case to default to unicode) This patch tests for str and and unicode objects, and handles each appropriately.
