Remove unused configobj and validate libraries from externals. #533

merged 1 commit into from

These libraries weren't actually being used anywhere. All tests still pass.

Also on the hitlist, but not yet removed: mglob and guid only seem to be used in deathrow and quarantine. Also, pyparsing isn't used anywhere, but it's mentioned in a docstring in core.prefilter that it's available.


Go for it. The more we remove unused stuff, the better the chances of a clean 0.11 release. Nobody should depend on our externals anyway, so this is fair game. Thanks!

Rebased and merged. For now, I've been conservative and only removed the completely unused stuff - I haven't touched the libraries that are used in deathrow and quarantine.
