ToDo's for lxml
===============
lxml
====
Exposing libxml2 functionalities
--------------------------------
* Test XML entities, also in an ElementTree context.
In general
----------
* test namespaces more in-depth
* more testing on multi-threading
* better exception messages for XPath and schemas based on error log,
e.g. missing namespace mappings in XPath
QName
-----
* expose prefix support?
Objectify
---------
* emulate setting special __attributes__ on ObjectifiedElement's as Python
attributes, not XML children
Features
--------
* RelaxNG compact notation (rnc versus rng) support. Currently not supported
by libxml2 (patch exists)
lxml 2.0
========
* always use '<string>' as URL when tree was parsed from string? (can libxml2
handle this?)
* clean up (and remove?) duplicated API for extension functions
* follow PEP 8 in API naming (avoidCamelCase in_favour_of_underscores)
* clean support for entities (is the Entity element class enough?)
* rewrite iterparse() to accept a parser as argument instead of being
one (or maybe not: iterparse() can't deal with all parser options
anyway).
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
