Status of pyxml development

Bugzilla from nicolas@nexedi.com
Hi all,
I would like to know what is the status of pyxml ? I saw on sourceforge
that it is no longer maintained but i want to have a confirmation.

So i'm using a interesting module of the pyxml library: the Marshaller.
I played a bit with and find some weakness like non support of namespaces.

I reimplemented it with lxml (may be its a troll in this mailing-list,
sorry in advance) with full support of namespaces.

How can i contribute ? do i need to fork this code ?
Do you have suggestions ?

Regards,
Nicolas

The sourceforge site has been stating the truth for a while now.

I think the best way to have people use your code is to put it into a new
package and put it up on PyPI. If it keeps up compatibility with the PyXML
marshaller, the better. That will allow users of the marshaller package
(however many there may be left) to easily migrate to your package.

Stefan

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for your reply, it is what i expect  :)
I didn't change the regular tests, so it should be still compatible with
PyXML implementation.
So I will publish it on PyPI and send an announcement on this mailing-list

Regards,
Nicolas

True, but at the moment, only the project page says that.
<http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/> and
<http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/topics/> are the top 2 Google hits for "pyxml"
and don't mention anything about it. In fact the former seems to have recently
gone missing. Did I miss an announcement of its retirement? It used to look
like this: <http://web.archive.org/web/20080429132440/http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/>

I suggest restoring something (anything) to
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyxml/> to say what the PyXML project is,
that it's no longer maintained, and to link to the other sites, if not also to
say that a new maintainer would be welcomed despite the declining usefulness
of the package.

I also suggest putting a "PyXML is no longer maintained" on the old topics
subpage.

Mike

Most likely so. I posted an announcement to this list when I stopped
maintaining it. This was four years ago.

I was talking about the page at http://pyxml.sourceforge.net/, which says what
PyXML is. This page only went missing within the last year.

I don't recall the details; I think somebody requested that the old (and
outdated) content was removed.

Regardless - PyXML has been unmaintained much longer.
