Unfortunately python-debianbts depends on SoapPy for parsing the Debian bugtracker's responses, and that library is …read more
Let's consider the following scenario: I have two Python processes receiving the same events and I have to measure the delay between when process A received the event and when process B received it, as precisely as possible (i.e. less than 1ms).

Quoting from the official announcement:
Scientists spend more and more time writing, maintaining, and debugging software. While techniques for doing this efficiently have evolved, only few scientists actually …
Looking at the sorry state of Python in Debian, makes me wonder if we shouldn't enforce team maintainance of packages above a certain popularity/importance/whatever threshold. People worked hard in the last months to fix any bugs that would prevent Python2.6 to land in unstable and yet nothing …read more
