  • subprocess: fix bug #18 and #22 preventing subprocess to works.
  • os: force all stat.st_nlink to be 1 at minimal


  • sync with 3.2.2 Makefile

Known limitations

  • some API may missing in the library FD's. Please, warn me if you need them!
  • library is build without Py_DEBUG, so API brings by this mode is not exported.
    Do not try to build something using this define!
  • C code extending Python by exporting new type must preserve R13 register (PowerPC)!
    or crash will occure (python library is baserel).
    Modules build using distutils are almost safe, as gcc is run using r13 protection option.
  • socket module can't be used in threads
  • local module not well supported
  • some minor modules are not supported... but no time for that (help wanted).

Dev notes (or 2.7.3)

Things to checks before public release

  • regr tests must be be validated:
    • No crashes, system freeze or test lock!
    • no -x rules!
    • skip expected list filled (
