pdfcrowd appengine python api timing out
wrote on 2013-08-27:
I am currently receiving "pdfcrowd error: Deadline exceeded while waiting for HTTP response from URL: https://pdfcrowd.com/api/pdf/convert/uri/" when a conversion takes more than 5 seconds. I want to change the time limit to be 60 seconds which I think is the app engine max allowed timeout (or whatever the pdfcrowd max timeout is) .
Is there a parameter in the pdfcrowd API that makes this change easy or do I need to update the client library you provided?

from google.appengine.api import urlfetch
