#10923 closed (fixed)

Use thread-safe GEOS API if available

Description

The number of configurations under which GeoDjango can be used is limited by its relative lack of thread-safety as compared to the rest of the framework, mainly due to the lack of thread-safety of underlying libraries like GEOS. The latest release of GEOS adds a thread-safe C API (proposed in http://trac.osgeo.org/geos/wiki/RFC3, tracked in http://trac.osgeo.org/geos/ticket/210, and committed prior to the release of GEOS 3.1.0), so GeoDjango should use it if it's available.

See also the GeoDjango mercurial branch for a thread-safe GEOS interface. Thanks to a dev known as tazle, we have a beginning implementation, however, it's a non-trivial addition that can benefit from additional testing.
