./devel/py-Pyro, Distributed Object Technology system in Python

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.63, Package name: py27-Pyro4-4.63, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Pyro is an acronym for PYthon Remote Objects. It is an advanced and powerful
Distributed Object Technology system written entirely in Python, that is
designed to be very easy to use. It resembles Java's Remote Method
Invocation (RMI). It is less similar to CORBA - which is a system- and
language independent Distributed Object Technology and has much more to
offer than Pyro or RMI. But Pyro is small, simple and free (MIT software

Log message:
py-Pyro: updated to 4.63

Pyro 4.63
- fixed bug in autoproxy logic where it registered the wrong type if \ 
daemon.register() was called with
  a class instead of an object (internal register_type_replacement method)
- added check in @expose method to validate the order of decorators on a method \ 
(@expose should come last,
  after @classmethod or @staticmethod).
- added resource tracking feature (see 'Automatically freeing resources when \ 
client connection gets closed' in the Tips & Tricks chapter)
- the warning about a class not exposing anything now actually tells you the \ 
correct class

Log message:
py-Pyro: update to 4.62

Pyro 4.62:
major new feature: SSL/TLS support added - a handful of new config items \ 
(‘SSL’ prefixed), supports server-only certificate and also 2-way-ssl \ 
(server+client certificates). For testing purposes, self-signed server and \ 
client certificates are available in the ‘certs’ directory. SSL/TLS in Pyro \ 
is supported on Python 2.7.11+ or Python 3.4.4+ (these versions have various \ 
important security related changes such as disabling vulnerable cyphers or \ 
protocols by default)
added SSL example that shows how to configure 2-way-SSL in Pyro and how to do \ 
certificate verification on both sides.
added cloudpickle serialization support (https://github.com/cloudpipe/cloudpickle/)
added a small extended-pickle example that shows what dill and cloudpickle can \ 
do (send actual functions)
daemon is now more resilient to exceptions occurring with socket communications \ 
(it logs them but is otherwise not interrupted) (this was required to avoid \ 
errors occurring in the SSL layer stopping the server)
some small bugs fixed (crash when logging certain errors in thread server, \ 
invalid protected members showing up on pypy3)
the raise data line in a traceback coming from Pyro now has a comment after it, \ 
telling you that you probably should inspect the remote traceback as well.
note: if you’re using Python 3 only and are interested in a modernized version \ 
of Pyro, have a look at Pyro5: https://github.com/irmen/Pyro5 It’s \ 
experimental work in progress, but it works pretty well.
note: Pyro4 is reaching a state where I consider it “feature complete”: \ 
I’m considering not adding more new features but only doing bug-fixes. New \ 
features (if any) will then appear only in Pyro5.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for devel category

Issues found with existing distfiles:
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Mark packages as not ready for python-3.x where applicable;
either because they themselves are not ready or because a
dependency isn't. This is annotated by
PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCOMPATIBLE=  33 # not yet ported as of x.y.z
respectively, please use the same style for other packages,
and check during updates.

Use versioned_dependencies.mk where applicable.
Use REPLACE_PYTHON instead of handcoded alternatives, where applicable.
Reorder Makefile sections into standard order, where applicable.

Remove PYTHON_VERSIONS_INCLUDE_3X lines since that will be default
with the next commit.

Whitespace cleanups and other nits corrected, where necessary.
