The first TSF sponsored Twisted sprint is done. Here's a quick rundown of some of the things that happened (this is the same summary as I sent to the mailing list so you can skip it if you already read it there).
- Glyph Lefkowitz made a huge dent in the current review queue, dealing with more than half of the outstanding tickets.
- After some discussion about the value of a bugfix-only release vs a normal bugfix and feature enhancement release, Christopher Armstrong got the wheels rolling on 8.1.0 (which will be of the latter type). You probably already saw the pre1 announcement. Give it a spin!
- Paul Swartz continued to strive towards the goal of Twisted Conch being as soft and cuddly as a little bunny rabbit.
- Ying Li worked on permission and ownership features for FilePath.
- Jeff Mancuso came by for a while and talked about Twisted Conch performance (and did some benchmarks) and SFTP access control issues.
- Roland Hedberg got his hands dirty in pyOpenSSL working on adding an API to get arbitrary X509v3 extensions.
- Itamar Shtull-Trauring helped out all around.
- I finished fixing some reactor startup and shutdown issues introduced in 8.0.
The next sprint is tentatively scheduled for May 18th at the Divmod office.
