Few weeks ago I was implementing some Crossbar.io HTTP Bridge services in a couple of projects. Turned out that the documentation points to a Python package called
crossbarconnect that doesn’t seem to exist any more: http://crossbar.io/docs/HTTP-Bridge-Publisher/
Looking around I found this thread commenting the topic, which seems pretty much dead: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/crossbario/6B7SNyFYoWI
Feenes pointed out an actual package that does exactly what the documentation says: https://github.com/thehq/python-crossbarhttp The package was developed by Eric Chapman at The HQ, a company based in L.A. https://thehq.io/
Now, the development of that package was stopped around October 2015 and unfortunately only worked in Python 2. I needed it to work in both Python 2 and 3 versions to use it in a couple of different projects. So I fixed that and I submitted a PR to The HQ repo: https://github.com/thehq/python-crossbarhttp/pull/1
However, they didn’t respond yet to the PR.
At this point, I am thinking on releasing my own package in PyPI if I don’t get a response from them in a reasonable time. Anyway, it is released with a MIT license, so that is entirely possible to do, afaik.
So, my specific question (finally) is: can I name the package as you named the original one,
crossbarconnect? If I do this, you don’t have to update the official documentation, since (I think) what it says is covered by Eric Chapman version, and moreover my new code has a couple of extra features. Would I have your (Crossbar.io Team) permission to do this?
In case you agree, I can give you my updated GitHub repo, so you can take ownership of it in your own GitHub account if you prefer that. Also the same will be for the PyPI page in case you finally want it, I can release a new
crossbarconnect version and give you guys the admin rights of the package as well.
What do you think about this? Are you interested on it, or should I just release a package on my own, named differently?
Thanks for your time,
