Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

The issue is not the specific warnings Rusi got but how, in general, one can get more information when the warnings are too cryptic to deal with.

One response might be that DeprecationWarnings should be much wordier than they are -- a paragraph of a few sentences rather than just a minimal sentence. Another might be that each release have a HOW-TO doc or What's New section with a paragraph for each one added to that release.

Currently, information is scattered among pydev posts, tracker issues, commit messages, News entries, and maybe What's new.
