The errors comes down to this: twistd script does not add current working directory to python path (or removes it, I don't know what exactly happens), so it fails to import any packages/modules from it. The issue does not appear in previous version (Twisted 16.3.2).
Any ideas what caused it?
The commits that closed this ticket: http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/8491
The bin/twistd script would add the current working directory to sys.path prior to running the actual twistd logic. This was not ported over.
I'm going to say that was a conscious decision, as it coincided with moving twisted to a src/ layout and a fair bit of discussion (visible in that ticket) about how these changes have made trial only discover installed code and not whatever's in the current working directory.
To a developer of Twisted it's clear that the project's trying to replace magical code discovery with boring code importing. To a user, that's not clear, and we need to clearly document this.
Being a Twisted developer, I do think in general that it's better to install your code into an existing sys.path entry instead of adding a sys.path entry that contains your code.
Would this be difficult for your application, and if so, why? If it's possible to make it easier for your application I'd like to help.
Thanks for using Twisted!
