Log message:
Changes 13.1.0:
- trial now has an --exitfirst flag which stops the test run after
  the first error or failure.
- twisted.internet.ssl.CertificateOptions now supports chain
- twisted.internet.endpoints now provides ProcessEndpoint, a child
  process endpoint.
- Factory now has a forProtocol classmethod that constructs an
  instance and sets its protocol attribute.
- twisted.internet.endpoints.connectProtocol allows connecting to a
  client endpoint using only a protocol instance, rather than
  requiring a factory.
- twisted.trial.unittest.SynchronousTestCase.assertNoResult no longer
  swallows the result, if the assertion succeeds.
- twisted.python.constants.FlagConstant implements __iter__ so that
  it can be iterated upon to find the flags that went into a flag
  set, and implements __nonzero__ to test as false when empty.
- assertIs and assertIsNot have now been added to
- twisted.trial.unittest.TestCase.failureResultOf now takes an
  optional expected failure type argument.
- The POSIX implementation of
  twisted.internet.interfaces.IReactorProcess now does not change the
  parent process UID or GID in order to run child processes with a
  different UID or GID.

revertd to r1.12.
This package contains no python version specific files,
so no need to be prefixed with PYPKGPREFIX.

Log message:
Changes 12.0.0:
 - The interface argument to IReactorTCP.listenTCP may now be an IPv6
   address literal, allowing the creation of IPv6 TCP servers.
 - twisted.python.constants.Names now provides a way to define
   collections of named constants, similar to the "enum type" feature
   of C or Java.
 - twisted.python.constants.Values now provides a way to define
   collections of named constants with arbitrary values.

 - Fixed an obscure case where connectionLost wasn't called on the
   protocol when using half-close.
 - UDP ports handle socket errors better on Windows.
 - When idle, the gtk2 and glib2 reactors no longer wake up 10 times a
 - Prevent a rare situation involving TLS transports, where a producer
   may be erroneously left unpaused.
 - twisted.internet.iocpreactor.iocpsupport now has fewer 64-bit
   compile warnings.
 - The GTK2 reactor is now more responsive on Windows.
 - TLS transports now correctly handle producer registration after the
   connection has been lost.
 - twisted.protocols.htb.Bucket now empties properly with a non-zero
   drip rate.
 - IReactorSSL and ITCPTransport.startTLS now synchronously propagate
   errors from the getContext method of context factories, instead of
   being capturing them and logging them as unhandled.

Improved Documentation
 - The multicast documentation has been expanded.
 - twisted.internet.defer.Deferred now documents more return values.
 - Show a better starting page at

Deprecations and Removals
 - Remove the deprecated module twisted.enterprise.reflector.
 - Removed the deprecated module twisted.enterprise.row.
 - Remove the deprecated module twisted.enterprise.sqlreflector.
 - Removed the deprecated module twisted.enterprise.util, as well as
 - Python 2.4 is no longer supported on any platform.
 - Removed printTraceback and noOperation from twisted.spread.pb,
   deprecated since Twisted 8.2.

Log message:
Changes 10.1.0:
* Add linux inotify support, allowing monitoring of file system
* Deferreds now support cancellation.
* Added new "endpoint" interfaces in twisted.internet.interfaces,
  which abstractly describe stream transport endpoints which can be
  listened on or connected to.  Implementations for TCP and SSL
  clients and servers are present in twisted.internet.endpoints.
  Notably, client endpoints' connect() methods return cancellable
  Deferreds, so code written to use them can bypass the awkward
  "ClientFactory.clientConnectionFailed" and
  "Connector.stopConnecting" methods, and handle errbacks from or
  cancel the returned deferred, respectively.
* twisted.protocols.amp.Integer's documentation now clarifies that
  integers of arbitrary size are supported and that the wire format
  is a base-10 representation.
* twisted.protocols.amp now includes support for transferring
  timestamps (amp.DateTime) and decimal values (amp.Decimal).
* twisted.protocol.ftp.IWriteFile now has a close() method, which can
  return a Deferred. Previously a STOR command would finish
  immediately upon the receipt of the last byte of the uploaded file.
  With close(), the backend can delay the finish until it has
  performed some other slow action (like storing the data to a
  virtual filesystem).
* FilePath now calls os.stat() only when new status information is
  required, rather than immediately when anything changes.  For some
  applications this may result in fewer stat() calls.  Additionally,
  FilePath has a new method, 'changed', which applications may use to
  indicate that the FilePath may have been changed on disk and
  therefore the next status information request must  fetch a new
  stat result.  This is useful if external systems, such as C
  libraries, may have changed files that Twisted applications are
  referencing via a FilePath.
* Documentation improvements are now summarized in the NEWS file.
* twisted.internet.task.deferLater now returns a cancellable
* The connect methods of twisted.internet.protocol.ClientCreator now
  return cancellable Deferreds.
* twisted.spread.pb now has documentation covering some of its
* twisted.spread.jelly now supports jellying and unjellying classes
  defined with slots if they also implement __getstate__ and
* twisted.protocols.amp.ListOf arguments can now be specified as
* Bugfixes
