Package: cobbler-web
Version: 2.6.6+dfsg1-13
Severity: important

The cobbler-web package appears to assume an earlier django version and
breaks on version 1.10 which is currently in Stretch.  500 Server error.

I've made the following changes in an effort to workaround, but given up
as didn't look like it was going to be a quick fix...  Haven't checked
upstream git to see if this has already been done...

in  /usr/share/cobbler-common/web/

        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': [
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['cobbler.mydomain']

and have commented out:

#from django.conf.global_settings import TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS
#     'django.core.context_processors.request',

... sources were:;a=commitdiff;h=234bb8912faacdc1840d00e67caf8833d12ab502


In /usr/share/cobbler-common/web/ :

from django.conf.urls import include, url

    url(r'^', include('cobbler_web.urls')),
