This update is a major version bump that removes significant user-facing features and breaks compatibility with existing systems, meaning this update should first run through the procedure in the EPEL Incompatible Updates Policy.
As is, this seems to crash cqlsh due to a TypeError in the cython protocol handler:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/cqlsh", line 153, in <module> from cassandra.cluster import Cluster File "cluster.py", line 46, in init cassandra.cluster (cassandra/cluster.c:75524) File "connection.py", line 42, in init cassandra.connection (cassandra/connection.c:23564) File "protocol.py", line 1136, in init cassandra.protocol (cassandra/protocol.c:35123) File "protocol.py", line 1118, in cassandra.protocol.cython_protocol_handler (cassandra/protocol.c:21219) TypeError: Class-level classmethod() can only be called on a method_descriptor or instance method.
Removing protocol.so or otherwise disabling cython support seems to make things work correctly.
``fedpkg new-sources'' is broken due to bug 1403925, but apart from that, things seem to work okay.
