[RFE] backport patches to reduce wakeups
Last modified: 2008-08-05 20:02:30 EDT
Description of problem:
As noted in this blog post:
There are patches upstream (svn head) that add a new API to python to help
reducing wake ups. Since they wont be in an official release until python 2.6 I
think it makes sense to backport the patches and carry them in the rpm for a while.
To take advantage of them we will need updated PyGObject and PyGT packages but
since they are released it should not be a problem to get them into fedora soon.
According to the changelog for the python package, this was fixed on 7 Jan 2008 and is in Fedora 9 now.
