[Python-Dev] How to set/update value in a xml file using requests in python


This is more relevant to python-list than python-dev. I've added
python-list to the To header.

Gmail doesn't appear to allow setting a reply-to for a single message,
so I've not set that; please, when replying, drop python-dev from the
to: header.

You'll likely want to set up some kind of REST endpoint to allow
updating your xml file.  Imagine if anyone could change anyone else's
xml files - it'd be pretty chaotic.

Perhaps flask would be appropriate?

You likely will want a PUT or a POST HTTP verb:
