    nwfilter: python bindings for nwfilter
    I have primarily followed the pattern of the 'secret' driver to provide
    support for the missing python bindings for the network filter API.

and in my GIT checkout everything is fine. It looks like the tar.gz of the 0.8.1 release of libvirt though included an outdated docs/libvirt-api.xml file and thus when the python bindings got built in brew, these APIs were not included. We need to find out why the libvirt-api.xml was not being re-generated correctly. Forcing regeneration in brew & rebuilding shoudl fix this.

Argh, that's the reason ... okay, will fix, thanks !


Comment 6 Stefan Berger 2010-05-11 13:52:39 UTC
Confirmed that in 2nd build


parts of the API are also missing and docs/libvirt-api.xml does not show
the nwfilter functions. The git checkout of tag v0.8.1 does show the functions in docs/libvirt-api.xml.

Comment 7 Daniel Veillard 2010-05-12 16:30:18 UTC
libvirt-0.8.1-3.el6 has been built in RHEL-6-candidate with the fix, it should
now export the nwfilter functions and snapshot ones from python bindings.

The problem is precisely that docs/libvirt-api.xml is not in git anymore
and the docs/Makefile.am was modified in subtle ways leading to it
not being rebuilt anymore on "make dist" like I'm used to.


Comment 8 Stefan Berger 2010-05-14 18:38:51 UTC
I installed libvirt-0.8.1-3.el6 rpm and can confirm that the previously missing functions are now available in the python bindings.
