use urllib library to have an upload status bar

P: n/a
Hi all,
Before I start, please know that I'm no developer, just a user.
This is also a cross-post as I have tried to post the same at python-
bugs mailing list, just don't know if it gets in or not.

We have a bug-reporting system in ubuntu called apport. Apparently
apport uses a python library called urllib. As of now, apport does a
bouncing bar while uploading which doesn't give the user idea as to
how much is being uploaded. Refer https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ort/+bug/91521
.. I did try to see if this issue has been addressed or not but came
nowhere. It would be nice to know if there are some solutions, or is
there a roadmap where this feature would be integrated in the library.
Looking forward to suggestions, additions, flames & constructive
criticism of the same. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

the generic http browser upload doesn't give you any opportunity to
have a callback so you can update the screen with any progress.
There are some Java solutions available, but IMHO it will take a
major change to browser's http upload implementation to make this
possible.

Here is a Python project that has implemented an upload progress bar:
