Description (last modified by kvas)


We are starting to have other packages in the abp namespace, for example abp-request-classifier. If abp is a normal package (not namespace), only one of them can be imported. This is rather suboptimal.

What to change

Make abp in python-abp a namespace package by placing the following line in its __init__.py:

__path__ = __import__('pkgutil').extend_path(__path__, __name__)

This is the second option from namespace packaging guide. Unfortunately we can't go with the first as long as python-abp supports Python 2.

The new version should be released to PyPI. This can be a patch version bump so the new version will be 0.1.1.
