Description Osiris 2022-10-24 10:06:48 UTC
In version 2.5.0 of `dev-python/pyjwt`, upstream decided it would be a good idea to have a dependency on the `types-cryptography` module when the package was imported with the `crypto` extras enabled ( On Gentoo, this results in a `DistributionNotFound` error when `pkg_resources` from `setuptools` is being used to import the PyJWT module with `extras==crypto`:

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'types-cryptography>=3.3.21; extra == "crypto"' distribution was not found and is required by PyJWT

As `cryptography` was typed in more recent versions than 3.3.21 and this dependency on `types-cryptography` lead to all kinds of problems, an issue was raised upstream ( and consequently fixed in version 2.6.0 (

However, `dev-python/pyjwt-2.6.0` is currently marked as unstable and stable version 2.5.0 is not working in some situations.
