[PATCH 0/3] python/notmuch2: a few docstrings and collect_tags()

Subject:[PATCH 0/3] python/notmuch2: a few docstrings and collect_tags()

Date:Wed, 6 Jan 2021 10:08:39 +0100



From:Michael J Gruber

collect_tags() (collecting all tags from messages in a query) is
available in the legacy bindings. Patch 3/3 provides it in the cffi
bindings. Patch 1 and 2 are doctsrings clean-ups/amends.

On 3/3: The tag iterator returned by the underlying library function is
short lived. If I simply return the ImmutableTagSet then it is empty
after one call. The way I make it long lived is nothing that I am proud
of - there may be much better ways. But it feels wrong to return an
"ImmutableTagSet" which survives only one call; it's not an iterator.

Not exposing queries nor "messages objects" seems to be a design
decision of the cffi bindings, and this patch follows it.

doc did not]
