As I had to touch almost every line I took the opportunity to also cleanup the code, as this simplified the task: I used mypy and flake8 a lot during development and every warning was distracting me from getting the thing done.
While doing that I also stumbled over lots of smaller problems and even bugs; they are at the start of the queue so feel free to fast-track them by only merging them or cherry-picking them.
This addresses python/typeshed#4310 by adding the type information into the library instead of carrying them as as separate files in a separate project. If you want to use the for previous information, look at my typeshed for libvirt.
This task was already announced once at https://patchew.org/Libvirtemail@example.com/, which becomes obsolete with the pull-request.
there are some
TODOs in c3b26fcc
maybe also create
extend libvirt-api.xml to return more specific Python types like
List[int]- see comments
verify that my type annotations matches the actual returned data by calling each function from some (manually generated?) unit test file
