So you want me to remove the current vte which has python module and replace it with the new vte which does not? Making the python module unavailable?

Yes, and keep vtemodule here till 2.6.2 will be official and moved to the main repository. Actually I do not aware any application in the repo using vtemodule, its existence is just a side effect :)

To be serious, please mocve vte to main. If somone will claim the missing vtemodule he will find it here.

When offering the new python 2.6 extension please take in consideration to offer a python 2.5 extension too.

In principle different python versions can be used in parallel, so I hope two different extensions can coexist side by side.

Anyway a python 2.5 version is needed. Important applications as Google Appengine rely on python 2.5 and don't work with python 2.6*.


Maybe the python 2.5 version even could be updated for ssl and sqlite support.

* see fourth paragraph: 'App Engine supports Python 2.5'
http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/python/overview.html
To my experience this statement has to be read as 'Don't try a newer python version, if you don't want to ruin your results.'

Did you try it with 2.6 ? This statement above says only it works with 2.5 but do not say doesn't work with 2.6 For me it says only that it was built and tested on 2.5 which was the version available that time and ofiicially not tested with 2.6

Yes, see my above footnote.

Or ask nickjohnson on the official appengine #freenode channel.

I trust you :)

My advice is to make 2.6.2 official and make 2.5.2 available for those need for backward compatibility.

BTW, thanks for mentioning Google Appengine, I didn't know it. Looks really interesting.

The current python will be renamed python-2.5.2 and still be available in the repo.  It will be the one built with ssl, sqlite, and tk support.   Pygtk I should get to tonite, and with some other python related submissions that are waiting in the gmail account, we are close to being ready for final testing and replacement.  I will move vte to the repo and the waiting python extensions in the queue to storage when I get home tonight.

Thanks to everyone involved for your quick work on this.

dbus-python will need rebuilding, as well as wicd.  Juanito, I can do dbus-python if you are occuppied now.  I built wicd but there were issues finding the gobject module when running the app.  Time is tight for me right now so I didn't get to troubleshoot and find the issue, but with those two extensions rebuilt that should get us pretty close to completion.

JLS - I can do wicd if you are not able to, but if you could rebuild it that would be a big help.

It looks like wicd is the only package that will be broken by this update. I aim to correct pygobject and have everything copied over by sometime tomorrow.  Wicd will need to be rebuilt, or another version from Debian repackaged that uses python 2.6.

Jason,

   Did you receive my three updates dated Aug 28? pysqlite2, SQLAlchemy, and dictclient.  I do not see them in the python-update folder yet.  If you didnt receive, I can resend.
