Updated Package for openSUSE: python-icalendar 2.1


I’m pleased to announce my updated Package python-icalendar for openSUSE. It is available in openSUSE:Factory:Contrib.

Whats happend since the last Version? Changes.txt tells us:

2.1 (2009-12-14)
================

* Fix deprecation warnings about `object.__init__` taking no parameters.

* Set the VALUE parameter correctly for date values.

* Long binary data would be base64 encoded with newlines, which made the iCalendar files incorrect. (This still needs testing).

* Correctly handle content lines which include newlines.

iCalendar 2.0.1 (2008-07-11)
============================

* EXDATE and RDATE now returns a vDDDLists object, which contains a list of vDDDTypes objects. This is do that EXDATE and RDATE can contain lists of dates, as per RFC.

***Note!***: This change is incompatible with earlier behavior, so if you handle EXDATE and RDATE you will need to update your code.

* When createing a vDuration of -5 hours (which in itself is nonsensical), the ical output of that was -P1DT19H, which is correct, but ugly. Now it’s ‚-PT5H‘, which is prettier.

* Made the tests run under Python 2.5+

* Renamed the UTC class to Utc, so it would not clash with the UTC object, since that rendered the UTC object unpicklable.

Call for Participation: openSUSE-Medical


Abstract: I’m pleased to announce an new Subproject from openSUSE: openSUSE_Medical. This new Project tries to package more Software for doctors’s practice or clinical needs. With our work we try to bridge a gap in the market.
Logistic: For better logistic we have opened an new OBS Project called „medical“. You can use it as Repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/medical/. Our new Wikisite is placed under: http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE-Medical. There you find our new Mailinglist for our Project.
What is to do? We try to package more Software. I’ve found this List about Free Medical Software. we thought, that we can try to build one Software each purpose. If this is done, we can try to package more Software. But it is important to package not too much. This is an Joy-Project.
