Hi openstack-dev@,

The barbican team would like to retire the 2.x branch of python-barbicanclient in favor of the 3.x branch:


The 3.x branch of python-barbicanclient represents a major improvement of the Barbican client.  The main breaking change between the 2.x and 3.x clients is the adoption of Keystone Sessions exclusively for authentication, so all python-barbicanclient specific authentication mechanisms from 2.x were removed.

The 3.x branch also includes a few changes to the Secret and Order models to make them more usable.  Specifically, both Orders and Secrets hold a handle to their respective EntityManager, so you don’t have to juggle two different objects to work with a single entity.  e.g. Storing a secret can now be done by calling Secret.store() on the secret instance.
