New issue 709 by marc...@gmail.com: Spreadsheet export cannot convert file
to txt
https://code.google.com/p/gdata-python-client/issues/detail?id=709

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Call gd_client.Export(entry, export_filename), with a spreadsheet entry
using code as follows. The export_filename could be 'foo.txt' having
the '.txt' suffix.

...
document_query = gdata.docs.service.DocumentQuery()
feed = gd_client.Query(q)
...
for entry in feed.entry:
...
gd_client.Export(entry, export_filename)


What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

It is expected to download the file to foo.txt but raises the following
exception instead.

This entry cannot be exported as a different format
SERVICE ERROR while downloading ZWOpenLog
Try ranaming the file.



What version of the product are you using?
gdata (2.0.18)

Please provide any additional information below.

Line 334 in service.py checks if 'Export' is in the url with
the following code:

if export_format is not None:
=> if url.find('/Export?') == -1:
raise gdata.service.Error, ('This entry cannot be exported '

It should also check for 'export' with a lowercase 'e'.


Thank you.

Comment #2 on issue 709 by marc...@gmail.com: Spreadsheet export cannot
I fixed mine by change the code to:

if export_format is not None:
if (url.find('/Export?') == -1) and (url.find('/export?') == -1):
raise gdata.service.Error, ('This entry cannot be exported '
'as a different format')

What is the protocol to get this change made in the pypi package? BTW, I
have the 2.0.18 version.

Thank you.
