[Python-modules-team] Bug#575897: python-transmissionrpc: Package is incompatible with repository version of the main Transmission app's RPC

Package: python-transmissionrpc
Version: 0.3-2
Severity: important

The squeeze version of python-transmissionrpc uses transmission RPC version 1.7x

The current version of transmission in squeeze is 1.92 which uses the newer trunk version - http://trac.transmissionbt.com/browser/trunk/doc/rpc-spec.txt

Unfortunately there has been a breaking change in the spec. Many attributes have been moved into the 'trackerStats' array - e.g. seederCount.

The following script will demonstrate the problem:


import transmissionrpc

tc = transmissionrpc.Client('localhost', port=9091, user='transmission', password='transmission')

torrent = tc.info(1)[1]

print torrent.trackerStats[0]['seederCount']

Actual output:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./transmission-control", line 9, in <module>
    print torrent.trackerStats[0]['seederCount']
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.5/transmissionrpc/transmission.py", line 86, in __getattr__
    raise AttributeError('No attribute %s' % name)
AttributeError: No attribute trackerStats

Expected output:
<an integer>

I have tried my test script with version 4.0 of transmissionrpc it works correctly.
