[IPython-dev] State of twisted.web2 in ipython1

Hello all,

Up until now, we have been using twisted.web2 in ipython1 anytime we
needed to speak http.  Twisted.web2 was meant to be a replacement for
twisted.web.  But, that never happened, so the twisted team has
decided to phase out web2 and merge things back into web.  This means
two things for us:

1) Any new code in ipython1 that needs http support should use web (it
is in the latest twisted 8 release).

2) We will be removing the private version of web2 that we have been
shipping in ipython1.  This is because it no longer works with the
latest twisted release.

3) Code in ipython1 that uses web2 (mostly the notebook frontend) will
need to be ported to web eventually.  This code is not stable anyways
so I don't think this will be a big deal.

Here is the wiki page the twisted dev team has put up on the issue:
