python-gear is a pure-Python asynchronous library to interface with Gearman.
It provides interfaces to build a client or worker, and access to the
administrative protocol. The design approach is to keep it simple, with a
relatively thin abstration of the Gearman protocol itself. It should be easy
to use to build a client or worker that operates either synchronously or
The module also provides a simple Gearman server for use as a convenience in
unit tests. The server is not designed for production use under load.
Installing the suggested python-statsd package would add support for reporting
to statsd a frontend to Graphite a stats collection and graphing server.
This package contains the Python 2.x module.

python-gear (0.5.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Merged upstream code within the packaging branch, and switching to a more
OpenStack-ish branch name (ie: debian/unstable):
- Updated debian/gbp.conf
* Fixed (build-)depends for this release.
* Removed non-active uploaders.
* Moved test related build-depends into build-depends-indep.
* Ran wrap-and-sort -t -a
* Better call unit test suite (directly with testr).
* Added missing build-depends: dh-python.
* Added missing build-depends-indep: subunit, testrepository.
* Calling testr directly instead of using python testr.
* Fixed debian/gbp.conf
* Switched to dh 9.
* Fixed debian/copyright.
* Using --buildsystem=python_distutils in debian/rules.

python-gear (0.5.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
* python-statsd is now a build dependency (required to run tests) but is
only a suggestion since the package works fine without it.
* Tweak build dependencies
* [Alexandros Kosiaris] Package predepends on dpkg (>= 1.15.6~) to fix
