The dev group hasn't decided (in whatever way it decides these
things) to require 2.6 yet. When and if it does, I will volunteer my
services as a Python expert to audit the in-tree Python code for 2.6
conformance and assist the developers in backporting if required.
I will also make myself available to audit future submissions.
I think you know who I am. Junio and the other senior devs certainly
know where to find me. I've been making promises like this, and
*keeping* them, for decades. Please stop wasting our time with
> Exactly. Why would you reject something you can fix easily?
I wouldn't. The point of a policy like this is not to kick incoming
submissions over the horizon as though that were some sort of
accomplishment, it's to let submitters know what is required of
them so they can code up to a standard that supports maintainability.
It would be no different than any of our other portability requirements.
