Spawning is a wsgi server which supports multiple processes,
multiple threads, green threads, non-blocking HTTP io,
and automatic graceful upgrading of code.
NOTE: This package is intended for the python26 stack in EPEL5 only.
May be this is a bit late, but: don't you think that this package should be named "python26-spawning"? (and it's counterpart in Fedora/EPEL5-python24 to be renamed to python-spawning?)
Compare to CherryPy or Twisted: the packages are named python-cherrypy and python-twisted-blah, so this renaming should make package naming more consistent.
Well, I don't know that I consider this to be a python add-on or library.
It provides a /usr/sbin/Spawning26 command, so it seems to me to be an application that happens to be written in python. Does that make sense?
I've picked CherryPy and Twisted as references because they do essentially the same thing: they provide a web-server, which can be used as a python library, and at the same time they contribute some commands to /usr/bin
After talking with Dave and Toshio and other various discussions, I decided this package isn't needed.
Since it's an application, not a library it doesn't make sense to have versions for the various stacks here.
