Just a brief note, I released Foolscap-0.6.4 tonight. This contains a
handful of small bugfixes and cleanups, gathered over the last 5 months.

The most significant change was that the "git-foolscap" tools were
cleaned up. These live in doc/examples/ , and let you configure remote
access to your Git repositories that uses a FURL instead of e.g. a
locked-down ssh shell.

Tarballs are available from the usual places:

 PyPI:   http://pypi.python.org/pypi/foolscap/0.6.4
 github: https://github.com/warner/foolscap/

Tarballs are signed with the Foolscap Release Signing Key (0xAF1B4A2A),
fingerprint = 7341 45FE BE70 E5D0 59C7 EDCD 3E86 92AF AF1B 4A2A.

** Minor Changes

The unreliable 'extras_require' property in setup.py, which allowed
other python programs to declare a dependency on foolscap's
"secure_connections" feature, was removed. See README.packagers for
alternate instructions. (#174)

'flogtool' log-dumping commands (dump, tail, web-viewer) now accept a
consistent --timestamps= argument to control how event times are
displayed (UTC, local, seconds-since-epoch, etc). (#192, #193)

Certain invalid "location" strings (accepted by Tub.setLocation and put
into FURLs) are rejected earlier, and with better error messages. The
error message produced when 'flogtool dump' is given a FURL-file
(instead of an event log file) has been improved.

The Incident Gatherer will tolerate incident-file errors better,
fetching remaining incidents instead of halting. (#190)

The git-over-foolscap tools were cleaned up, and the documentation was
brought into line with the implementation. (#197)

Other minor bugs were fixed: #179, #191, #194, #195, #196
