Description of problem: python-twisted 2.5.0 is out but we still got 2.4.0
This should now be added to Fedora 7 at least. There are some features that I
require but found that Fedora 7 still ships with 2.4.
Why can't we have the newere twisted 2.5 which was release in Janauary 2007.
clarification: no one has tested Twisted 2.5 in Fedora with python 2.5 and all
the apps using it.
This is quite some work, feel free to help out.
Freevo is a multimedia application written in python (that uses twisted 2.4) It
lives outsite Fedora for now, whereas is could be in it because all required
dependencies are provided from Fedora (whereas some third part can be added...)
- still testing...
They were a recent discution about twisted 2.5,

I have no plans to change the record server to use Twisted-2.5.0. The
1) Using Twisted as a RPC server is a bit of an overkill, using
kaa.notifier or Python's RPC calls is easier.
2) There are other functions that have been deprecated in Twisted which
are being used in the record server.
3) The record server has got more and more functionality and is now too
big and complex that it is difficult to maintain.
4) I don't like that favourites and scheduled recordings are stored in the
same unformatted xml file.
Back porting Freevo's 2 record server is one possibility but depends on
the dependencies of the rest of Freevo 2; need to look into this.
The other option is to rewrite the record server but this is not a small
undertaking and needs careful consideration. If back porting the record
server from Freevo 2 brings in add other dependencies then I would prefer
to rewrite it.
Hope this is explains why updating the record server to use Twisted-2.5
has not been done and what the plans for the record server are.
For now i haven't tryed rawhide with freevo, but if anyone setup a repository
with twisted 2.5 i will do some testing...(i'm not sure that it will work anyway...)
So maybe a parallele installable version would be better if this makes sense ?!
python-twisted-core-2.5.0-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I would like to hold the release as it will completely break freevo...
If a "leave in testing state" is permitted that would be a good answear for me...
otherwise freevo users will have to downgrade to Twisted-2.4
python-twisted-core-2.5.0-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
