Reconsider deprecation of config.get

Reported by: kskuhlman Owned by: kskuhlman
Priority: high Milestone: 1.5
Component: TurboGears Version: 1.5 HEAD
Severity: normal Keywords:


turbogears.config.get is currently deprecated in the 1.5 branch in favor of config.server.get (which is simply a pointer to CherryPy 3's config), and request.config.get. However, the need to train people to use request.config when inside of a request increases the barrier to 1.5's adoption.

We should consider making turbogears.config.get request-aware & removing the deprecation. This would also reduce the number of trivial diffs between the 1.1 & 1.5 branches.

Yes, I think we need a compatibility layer in TG 1.5 for accessing config settings like in TG 1.0.x. This would greatly reduce the effort for porting apps from TG 1.0.x to 1.5.

config.get is now request-aware, and no longer deprecated. This simplifies 1.5's config api significantly. Note that it was always 1.0/1.1 compatible, just deprecated. Fixed in r5488.
