[New-bugs-announce] [issue23888] Fixing fractional expiry time bug in cookiejar
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from ssh:
If the FileCookieJar reads a cookie whose expiry time is a decimal fraction, it crashes.
Chrome extensions "cookies.txt" and "EdiThisCookie" export the expiry time as decimal fractions. This is accepted by wget and curl, but not by the FileCookieJar which ends up crashing.
I made a StackOverflow question checking if fractional decimal expiry times were even allowed (if it was a bug in the extensions), but didn't get a response: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/29502672/can-the-cookie-expires-field-be-a-decimal-value
At any rate, this patch should make the library more robust.
