sqlalchemy-migrate doesn’t really have a dedicated maintainer anymore, AFAICT. It’s pretty much on stackforge life support. So while the issue of merging together a project with migrate and alembic at the same time seems to be something for which there are some complexity and some competing ideas (I have one that’s pretty fancy, but I haven’t spec’ed or implemented it yet, so for now there are “wrappers” that run both), it sort of has to happen regardless. _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
