A few days ago, Mr. glyph asked me to work on ticket 7775 (<
https://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/7775>). However, I had a couple of
questions and I posted them in a ticket comment. After waiting for a couple
of days, I was on #twisted-dev and Mr. adiroiban advised me to post my
query to the mailing list instead as it would reach more people, hence,
Here is a link to the comment on the ticket: <
It would really mean a lot to me if someone could go through my comment and
give me some guidance so that I can start working on this ticket. :-)
Thanks a lot for letting me be a part of this amazing community! It is a
huge honor for me to learn from all of you!
I am looking for any examples of using the ldapbindingchecker to authenticate a custom SSH Server written with Twisted and Python 2.7. At the moment I am trying to hack an existing SSHD example in the Twisted O'Reilly book. The docs refer to a "cfg" but I cannot find where it discusses what CFG actually is ?
I seem to need a service account to authenticate with the ldapbindingchecker so I can decide my user accound and password are valid over ldap. Where is this defined and what is the format ? I have found the global.cfg file and that gets me part of the way there but effectively I still cannot set a password. Can anyone help ?

Since we've added the buildbot link to trac pages, force-builds.py is
basically obsolete. I think we should just scrub all mentions of it,
and probably delete it.
I have created a ticket to remove it and clean documentation:
Is there anyone else still using this tool?
Should we keep it and rather than removing it, improve its documentation?
I'm starting a new job soon which doesn't involve Python. I also have a
newborn at home so my free time is pretty much spoken for.
If anyone is interested in maintaining treq I'm now accepting applications.
If anyone has an alternative to plug this would also be an OK time for
I have updated the Twisted Development page with a section describing
how to create a dev environment.
Feel free to update or remove it.
>From previous discussions the direction was that new persons
contributing to Twisted should already know how to build a dev/work
environment and we should not instruct them how or what to do.
With the addition of setup.py optional component I find it useful to
remind developers about the optional dev component... so I have
updated the wiki page.
I would go further and instruct developers not to use the
pyflakes/pylint versions provided by the OS as they might be old or
too new for twistedchecker :)
Is this wiki page still valid?
I saw that it was not updated in the last 5 years.
I think that latest Visual Studio license is free to use for open
My project/company can donate virtual machines. We will host them and
our sysadmin will take care of their uptime.
We have a Proliant G5 2xQuad Core Xeon server which is idle at our UK
office. It has UPS and dedicated RAID batteries.
We have donated 2 Linux VMs in the past but they were never used, so
we have stop them.
We can provide license for Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 Server as part of a
Microsoft Partner Network licensing scheme.
We don't have XP, Vista, Win7 licenses.
