Re: [Fedora-suds-list] Stale suds cache causing wsdl parser errors



In my case, I do much of my work using the iPython shell so I suppose
it's possible that it is corrupting the cache somehow when I shut
down. For my project I've got so many wsdls that I need to store them
on local disk, so caching isn't mandatory for me.
