[New-bugs-announce] [issue20753] disable test_robotparser

New submission from Larry Hastings:
Lib/tests/test_robotparser.py uses the following url:
That file now serves a 404.
This should be disabled for 3.4, and the test rewritten for 3.5. If we get a patch quickly I would probably cherry-pick it for 3.4 final.
Aside: it is REALLY IRRITATING that we have tests in the standard library that hit external web sites. The standard library regression test suite should *not* rely on network access. Can the rewritten test please spin up a local web server (http.server) and serve a robotx.txt that way?
stage: needs patch
title: disable test_robotparser
versions: Python 3.4, Python 3.5
