Firebird 2.5.1 packages are now available in Fedora 15 updates Epel6 (RHEL and Centos 6) packages are in testing for one more week according to the Epel policy. About Mageia 1 they will be in updates soon. For Mandriva they are in Cooker.
First thanks Hajime Nakagami for your job
I really thinks that we need to put our effort on this driver so it became the Firebird Python driver instead of Kinterbasdb
here few points I saw :
– need a change in setup.py so install work
– transactions parameter we need the possibility to send custom transaction parameter buffers, for what I saw today transactions are (isc_tpb_write, isc_tpb_wait, isc_tpb_read_committed, isc_tpb_rec_version)
– need documentation
– can we extend it or create a new module to work with trace api ?
ps after a small change in setup.py I will certainly package it for
Mageia and Fedora

I am a Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux developer and we are now
porting whole Fedora package collection to the s390x (IBM System z a.k.a
mainframe) architecture. The official sources for Firebird (in version
2.1.2) didn’t support this architecture, so I have prepared a patch that
adds this support. Please let me know what else should I do to get the
support accepted into the official source tree.
