Bug#517666: [ITP] python-lockfile: file locking library for Python

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Package name    : python-lockfile
  Version         : 0.7
  Upstream Author : Skip Montanaro <skip@pobox.com>
  URL             : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/lockfile

Description: file locking library for Python
 The ‘lockfile’ module exports a ‘FileLock’ class which provides a
 simple API for locking files.
 Other back ends are possible with the same semantics; an example
 ‘SQLiteFileLock’ class is included, that uses an SQLite database for
 the lock implementation.
 Unlike other Python locking libraries (the Windows ‘msvcrt.locking’
 function, the Unix ‘fcntl.flock’, ‘fcntl.lockf’, and the deprecated
 ‘posixfile’ module), the API is identical across both Unix (including
 GNU/Linux and MacOS) and Windows platforms.

  `\           hard work and discipline to achieve and education to be |
_o__)                                appreciated.” —Edsger W. Dijkstra |
