Comment 0 for bug 487522

Whilte working on the launchpadlib based changelog extract tool I run into the issue that I need to query for all published source packages to populate the initial changelogs (this is needed only once, from that point on its just a call to getPublishedSources with created_since_date).

I read on the launchpadlib api page that slicing is the solution for big queries like this, but that does not seem to work for me. I attach a small test program that demonstrates what I have in mind, the full source can be found at "lp:~mvo/+junk/lp-changelogs-crawler". The script works nicely if I limit the search to certain packages, but it does no longer work I ask it for all source packages.

Any hints or workarounds are welcome.
