The swift tree is in transition while we review and merge bite-sized pieces into the source.

(And the swift.diff file is eventually going away.)

Subject: Looping import in Swift w/cae3216a

Dear Peter:

I pulled the latest Gluster tip today from git, and it containes
a commit cae3216a, "object-storage: use constants for directory names".
In there, we have this:

+++ b/swift/1.4.8/plugins/utils.py
@@ -19,6 +19,7 @@ import errno
 import xattr
 from hashlib import md5
 from swift.common.utils import normalize_timestamp, TRUE_VALUES
+from swift.obj.server import ASYNCDIR
 import cPickle as pickle

But the existing swift.diff adds an opposing import, like so:

+++ b/swift/obj/server.py
@@ -45,6 +46,10 @@ from swift.common.exceptions import ConnectionTimeout, DiskFileError, \
 from swift.obj.replicator import tpooled_get_hashes, invalidate_hash, \
+from swift.plugins.utils import plugin_enabled
+if plugin_enabled():

The result is that "from swift.obj.server import ASYNCDIR" fails.

I suspect that something got inconsistent, for example maybe you have
moved plugin_enabled() into common in your tree.
