bpo-40057: Document some class attributes not mentioned in socketserver doc #19147

wants to merge 1 commit into
base: master

OverMighty commented Mar 24, 2020

Document the following class attributes, which were previously not mentioned in the documentation of the socketserver module despite of their existence:

StreamRequestHandler.connection (currently defined at line 764 of
DatagramRequestHandler.packet (currently defined at line 812 of
DatagramRequestHandler.socket (currently defined at line 812 of


Perhaps this is poorly worded, as those are actually instance attributes. However, StreamRequestHandler also defines 4 actual class (static) attributes that do not appear anywhere in the docs either, although they are preceded by a comment that describes them in
rbufsize, wbufsize, timeout and disable_nagle_algorithm.

ForkingMixIn also defines 3 class (static) attributes that do not appear in the docs either and are not preceded by a comment describing them in
timeout, active_children and max_children
