Bug#943419: RFA: python-requests-toolbelt -- Utility belt for advanced users of python-requests
(too old to reply)

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

We request an adopter for the python-requests-toolbelt package.

The package description is:
Collection of utilities for python-requests
It provides transport adapters: FingerprintAdapter, SSLAdapter,
SourceAddressAdapter, SocketOptionsAdapter, TCPKeepAliveAdapter

Petter and I both no longer have need for the package as it was package as a
dependency for creepy which is no longer in the archive.

It has picked up a few other reverse dependencies since though, so the package
is used.

The old Alioth git repository can be found archived here:

It could be a good package for a new-comer to pick up. Perhaps as part of the
Debian Python Modules Team?

I am wondering if i can adopt the package? I do not use the package, so
the maintenance of it is mostly a learning experience for me. But also
to give something back to the community.

I have no prior experience in packaging in Debian, but i think this
package could work well as a starting point.

If not, I can make a NMU package and upload instead.

I am wondering if i am allowed to upload new package of
python-requests-toolbelt. I have prepared a NMU upload.
I take it from what I see in
<URL: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=943419 >, you
are not aware that sending email to ***@bugs.debian.org do not reach
the requestor. :)

It is probably better to adapt it, and join the #debian-python IRC
channel and the python team to learn more how to maintain python
packages in Debian. :)

NMU is probably a waste if you instead can adapt it. :)
Happy hacking
