Package: src:python-kafka
Version: 0.9.5-2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I would like to use python-kafka using features released in 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2
(support for coordinated consumer groups, SSL, kafka 0.10 features).

Please consider updating the python-kafka package to something more recent than
the currently packaged 0.9.5 upstream release. I tried to look at the git
repository to do the update, but I have to say that the pkg-openstack
paraphernalia confused me, so I'm sorry for not providing patches.

Upstream has deprecated lots of legacy APIs, but as far as I can tell they have
not been removed yet, so the transition for reverse-dependencies should be

Thank you for considering,
Nicolas Dandrimont
