To the python mantainers:
I have resumed my work on rfc-24 and I'm now tackling item 3.2.
The purpose of item 3.2 is to prevent early garbage collection
when a parent reference goes out of scope, the details are at:
I have already committed the necessary changes for Java mapscript and then
I have prepared a patch for python that you can find here:
The patch introduces:
- a test program (tests/cases/parentreference.py)
- modifications to the wrappers of classObj and layerObj so that the
test program passes
Before making any changes I'll wait for your review/approval.
Please note that the patch must applied from mapscript/python.
