Description Simon McVittie 2009-08-05 07:57:07 UTC
The functionality of Requests should be a core part of Connection.

Proposed migration path:

* add CreateChannel, Channels etc. to Connection with the same signatures and semantics as in Requests

* augment TpBaseConnection and the Python equivalent to implement both sets of D-Bus API

* when those changes are old enough to rely on, change MC (and any clients that go behind its back) to use the core Connection interface instead of Requests

* deprecate the methods and properties of the Requests interface (to avoid emitting three sets of signals, it's probably OK to not move the signals)

* in Telepathy 1.0 (Bug #23148), delete the Requests interface and move its signals to the core Connection

* when telepathy-glib API is broken, remove TpChannelFactoryIface and all code needed to support it
Comment 1 Simon McVittie 2010-12-01 03:00:20 UTC
Telepathy 1.0 is relatively imminent and won't be backwards-compatible anyway, and porting will be straightforward, so let's just merge these interfaces at that point.
