[issue38526] zipfile.Path has the wrong method name

2019-10-19 Thread Alex Walters


New submission from Alex Walters :

https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/zipfile.html#zipfile.Path.listdir

The docs for zipfile.Path list a method named 'listdir', the closest 
approximation to the functionality described in the actual code is a method 
named 'iterdir'

[issue33598] ActiveState Recipes links in docs, and the apparent closure of Recipes

2018-05-25 Thread Alex Walters

Alex Walters <tritium-l...@sdamon.com> added the comment:

All recipes are MIT licensed unless otherwise noted on the recipe itself.

However, AFAICT, all the recipes that are linked to in the docs are written by 
Raymond Hettinger, so I don't think licensing will be that big of an issue.  We 
know where he is, we can ask him, and he has signed a CLA.

[issue33598] ActiveState Recipes links in docs, and the apparent closure of Recipes

2018-05-22 Thread Alex Walters

New submission from Alex Walters <tritium-l...@sdamon.com>:

ActiveState has stopped accepting new recipes on their website, and migrated 
all current recipes to a Github repo.  I have seen no official announcement of 
a shutdown date for the code.activestate.com website, but it's future has to be 
in question considering the migration.

I propose we go through the docs for all the recipes, and either rescue them to 
a section of the docs (perhaps to a new "Code Examples" section), incorporate 
the recipes into the doc pages where appropriate, or excise them entirely.

Another option would be to update the links to the GitHub repo, but I am less 
enthusiastic about that option - GitHub repos come and go, and mutate structure 
easily.  I don't think it would be a good idea to deep link into a repository 
not controlled by the Python project.

It would stink to have a bunch of suddenly dead links in the docs.

[issue33351] Support compiling with clang-cl on Windows

2018-04-25 Thread Alex Walters

Alex Walters <tritium-l...@sdamon.com> added the comment:

When supporting platforms comes up, there's a usual list of questions, 
especially for windows.  I can remember two of them off the top of my head:

* Are you suggesting that CPython's build system move away from MSVC as the 
platform compiler for Windows?

* Are you able to provide a machine to run buildbots on?

Is this the same as the clang/llvm C1 that you can enable from inside Visual

[issue26580] Documentation for ftplib still references ftpmirror.py

2016-03-19 Thread Alex Walters

New submission from Alex Walters:

in #23130 ftpmirror.py was removed from the python source distribution.  The 
documentation still references this, and sends people looking for the file 
(ostensibly as an example of how to use ftplib).

[issue19853] Add support for Bitrig to 2.7

2015-07-26 Thread Alex Walters

Alex Walters added the comment:

The vast majority of the patch is adding || Defined('bitrig') after 
Defined('openbsd').  I don't know if that is an argument for or against, but on 
its face, its just working around an issue of an openbsd fork not identifying 
as openbsd.

[issue24642] Will there be an MSI installer?

2015-07-17 Thread Alex Walters

Alex Walters added the comment:

Having now worked with the new installer, there is nothing wrong with it, and 
provides sufficient scritpability, if that is a word.  I only have two (and a 
half) thoughts on it:

1. This should be more prominently documented.  The addition of the new web 
installer is listed in What's New, but not that the change to the new 
installer, and lack of the old msi installer.  This is noteworthy for anyone 
who does scripted installs of python.

2. passing /? should list the available kay-value arguments.

2.5. The help should really be to stdout... If you are running /? on an 
installer executable, you are in the command prompt - no one creates a shortcut 
to an installer exe then modifies that shortcut to add the /? argument.

[issue24642] Will there be an MSI installer?

2015-07-17 Thread Alex Walters

Alex Walters added the comment:

on 2.5, I figured the answer would be along those lines.

for 2, Linking to the documentation at least would be helpful (or otherwise 
indicating that there are arguments that are not listed and are in the docs) if 
the arguments cant be listed reasonably easily.

[issue24642] Will there be an MSI installer?

2015-07-16 Thread Alex Walters

New submission from Alex Walters:

I use the *.msi installers for python to automate deployment of... an absurd 
number of python installations.  I have been able to do this relatively easily, 
as the Windows installer didn't change much between 2.6 and 3.4 (possibly much 
longer than that, but I don't know about 2.5 or earlier).

3.5 added a new installer (the web installer), and apparently dropped the old 
standby *.msi installers, for the beta versions.

Will there be *.msi installers for 3.5?

Related to the exe installer... /? lists only 4 options, none of which are 
useful in restricting the installation, or changing its location.

the Whats New in Python 3.5 lacks an indication that cpython is dropping
