Please leave any clean-ups to the module maintainers. PEP 8 is something you should do to your own code, rather than something you inflict on other people's code. We generally leave "clean-ups" to the module maintainers rather than creating code churn which can make it more difficult to apply actual bug fixes across versions. Also, GvR has long expressed a preference for "holistic refactoring" where we avoid making superficial changes across the library and reserve those changes for occasions where we're thinking more deeply about a specific piece of code. The basis for this viewpoint has been confirmed a number of times when we've received Pep 8 patches that introduced bugs into code that was previously correct. ---------- nosy: +rhettinger _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue23061> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
