SFC Sponsored Development, Oct-Dec by Amber

Hi everyone,

Along with Adi, I'm supposed to be publishing these too :)

Thanks to our generous sponsors, the Software Freedom Conservancy (of which our part is colloquially known as the Twisted Software Foundation) was able to financially support me as one of the Twisted Fellows. My job is to review tickets, and assist with the Git migration -- this report is mostly about the former, but does have some promising news about the latter.

This groups the tickets under reviewed and triaged -- you can get the full details of my work here, from Trac (which includes both SFC funded ticket reviewing, and non-SFC funded work on code).

Tickets reviewed:

- #5388 (merged): IRI implementation
- #5911 (merged): Support the 'HttpOnly' flag when setting cookies
- #6833: Port twisted.protocols.amp to Python 3
- #7037 (merged): Write test for cftp._cbPutTargetAttrs or remove untested / unused code.
- #7993: Port twisted.web.wsgi to Python 3
- #8082: Document deprecation policy and how to implement a deprecation
- #8107: Add a custom pyflakes runner to ignore Twisted excepted files
- #8116: Deprecate LoopingCall.deferred
- #8121: Port twisted.protocols.htb to Python 3
- #8122 (merged): Final pyflakes cleanup
- #8131 (merged): Port twisted.python.roots to Python 3
- #8132: Port twisted.web.vhost to Python 3
- #8138 (merged): twisted.conch.endpoints._NewConnectionHelper leaks agent connection

- #6178 (closed): Port twisted.web.util to Python 3
- #6920 (wontfix): twisted.scripts.test.test_tap2deb.TestTap2DEB.test_basicOperation fails (on Gentoo?)
- #7497 (closed): twistd produces confusing behavior under Python3
- #8007 (closed): API docs try to load urchin.js over http
