They have separate source packages? If so, yes we would need separate FFes.
Yes, the have separate source packages.
Do you want to do this?
It looks like the only API removal that could raise compatibility
�- The deprecated connectUDP method of IReactorUDP has now been � removed. (#4075)
I'm wondering if there's any code in Ubuntu packages relying on it.
How would we find out?
Good question. Something like pulling the source packages of all packages directly or indirectly depending on python-twisted-core and grepping for connectUDP.
I looked at the direct (apt-cache rdepends python-twisted | tail -n +3) and once removed (apt-cache rdepends python-twisted | tail -n +3 | xargs -iF bash -c 'apt-cache rdepends F | tail -n +3' | sort | uniq) dependencies of python-twisted.
One package refers to connectUDP, flumotion. It doesn't appear to actually use it, though; instead it seems to be monkey-patching it to correct a documentation issue. I don't think the removal will break this package, but it may result in flumotion-generated Twisted docs which include connectUDP, even though it no longer exists.
Have you already asked Matthias Klose (the maintainer) if he is interested in updating the packages himself? If not, I'll be glad to help out.
No, I haven't. It'd be great if you could sort this out.
Okay, I'll check that.
