Subject: python-dev summary, 2001-03-01 - 2001-03-15
This is a summary of traffic on the python-dev mailing list
between Mar 1 and Mar 14 (inclusive) 2001. It is intended to inform
the wider Python community of ongoing developments. To comment,
just post to email@example.com or comp.lang.python in the
usual way. Give your posting a meaningful subject line, and if it's
about a PEP, include the PEP number (e.g. Subject: PEP 201 -
Lockstep iteration) All python-dev members are interested in seeing
ideas discussed by the community, so don't hesitate to take a
stance on a PEP if you have an opinion.
This is the third python-dev summary written by Michael Hudson.
Previous summaries were written by Andrew Kuchling and can be found
A quiet fortnight on python-dev; the conference a week ago is
responsible for some of that, but also discussion has been
springing up on other mailing lists (including the types-sig,
doc-sig, python-iter and stackless lists, and those are just the
ones your author is subscribed to).
* Bug Fix Releases *
Aahz posted a proposal for a 2.0.1 release, fixing the bugs that
have been found in 2.0 but not adding the new features.
Guido's response was, essentially, "Good idea, but I don't have
the time to put into it", and that the wider community would have
to put in some of the donkey work if this is going to happen. Signs
so far are encouraging.
