Twisted in general is really good about keeping API, but they do
deprecate stuff.  When they do so they typically make it clear with
DeprecationWarning's.  I think it's mostly just a matter of testing the
applications using it by someone who knows the application.

Just to be clear, we want to do this for F-13 only, right ? Or are you
thinking about upgrading F-12 too ?

Do you have newly built twisted packages ?

I didn't know this was in already; I'm going to assume they're based on
my packages from a few months ago but I'll check.

> elisa-base-0:0.5.35-2.fc12.noarch
> elisa-plugins-bad-0:0.5.35-2.fc12.noarch
> elisa-plugins-ugly-0:0.5.35-1.fc11.noarch

I can check these.

> flumotion-0:0.6.1-1.fc12.x86_64

This is mine, I'll take this.

> python-desktopcouch-0:0.6.3-3.fc12.noarch

Same as desktopcouch above.

> python-nevow-0:0.9.32-3.fc12.noarch

nevow is another library - not sure if anything else depends on nevow.
