./devel/py-backports, Namespace for backported Python features

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0, Package name: py27-backports-1.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This backports namespace reserves a namespace beneath which we can happily
place all of the various features that we want to cut-and-paste from later
Python versions. I hope that this will provide two benefits:

1. It should provide greater sanity, and a bit more organization, in the
Package Index.
2. When you are ready to port a Python application to a new version of Python,
you can search the code for any import statements that name a backports
package, and remove the backports for features that have now “arrived” in
the version of Python to which you are upgrading.
