Aha, so I'm not the only one to consider forking ADODBAPI! :-) I,
too, submitted some fixes to the mailing list long ago and never got
a reply, and it's increasingly cumbersome to say "Requires ADODBAPI
v2.0.1 with this patch and that patch and...."
Has anyone forked it already? If I don't hear anything within a week,
I'm going to set up a Trac environment myself. I won't replace the
mailing list immediately, since Sourceforge's works fine and I don't
especially want to become a mail admin. I do look forward, though, to
rolling the accumulated patches into an up-to-date release and having
a central place to ticket what remains.
P.S. In response to the long-ago bottom poster, I think there are
more preferable ways to talk to MS SQL from Python than through ADO:
FreeTDS, for instance, which is cross-platform and less flakey than
ADO. However, for applications like mine which absolutely need ADO-
driven access, ADODBAPI seems the most mature solution.
