dbus-python is the original Python binding for dbus, the reference
implementation of the D-Bus protocol. Its main feature is that it is
compatible with older versions of dbus-python. Consider using a
different D-Bus binding or implementation in new Python code.

git tag: dbus-python-1.2.8

The “cursed ice surface” release.


• Documentation requires Sphinx and the readthedocs theme
• Documentation no longer requires epydoc


• Build documentation with Sphinx instead of epydoc

• Remove obsolete COMPAT.txt, documenting compatibility breaks in
  versions over a decade old


• Make sure $(builddir)/test exists before creating .test files there

• Add PKG-INFO and egg_info to dist tarballs so they can be uploaded
  to PyPI again
