[New-bugs-announce] [issue8318] Deprecation of multifile inappropriate or incomplete
report at bugs.python.org
Mon Apr 5 19:42:02 CEST 2010
New submission from Tres Seaver <tseaver at agendaless.com>:
Import of the multifile module emits a DeprecationWarning, but the
warning is either incomplete:
- The documentation states that the 'email' module is to be
preferred, but doesn't describe what APIs should be used from that
- In fact, the 'email' module doesn't appear to provide an equivalent
API to the 'multifile' module.
or perhaps inappropriate, as not all handling of 'multipart' MIME is
email related (e.g., processing HTTP form POSTs which include file uploads).
At a minimum, the docs for 'multifile' should include examples showing
the "preferred" way to implement its own native examples using
the'email' module's APIs.
