Hi oslo folks (and others),
I've recently put up a review for some common deprecation patterns:
In summary, this is a common set of patterns that can be used by oslo
libraries, other libraries... This is different from the versionutils
one (which is more of a developer<->operator deprecation interaction)
and is more focused on the developer <-> developer deprecation
interaction (developers say using oslo libraries).
Doug had the question about why not just put this out there on pypi with
a useful name not so strongly connected to oslo; since that review is
more of a common set of patterns that can be used by libraries outside
openstack/oslo as well. There wasn't many/any similar libraries that I
found (zope.deprecation is probably the closest) and twisted has
something in-built to it that is something similar. So in order to avoid
creating our own version of zope.deprecation in that review we might as
well create a neat name that can be useful for oslo/openstack/elsewhere...
Some ideas that were thrown around on IRC (check
'https://pypi.python.org/pypi/%s' % name for 404 to see if likely not
Any other neat names people can think about?
Or in general any other comments/ideas about providing such a
deprecation pattern library?
