New Identity predicates from r400 fail on Python 2.3

Reported by: Robin.Munn@… Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.9
Component: Identity Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


The new Identity predicates in r400 are very cool, but they fail to work in Python 2.3 because of using generator expressions, which are new in 2.4:

Traceback (most recent call last):

   group_predicates= (in_group(g) for g in groups)
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

The solution is to bypass the syntactic sugar and replace each occurrence with something equivalent like the following (warning: code written in email client, not tested):

def group_predicates(groups):
   for g in groups:
       yield in_group(g)

I count at least 5 places where this change would have to be made:

  • identity/conditions.py, line 93
  • identity/conditions.py, line 105
  • identity/conditions.py, line 147
  • identity/conditions.py, line 159
  • identity/conditions.py, line 216

There may be others I didn't spot. Line numbers reference r435 and may be different if you're looking at a different revision.

I now use list composition instead of generators.
