  Description     : python-gear: Asynchronous Event-Driven Gearman Interface

This module implements an asynchronous event-driven interface to
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 asynchronously.

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.


A first version has been uploaded in Python Modules team svn repositories:


I have cced the OpenStack team as well.
