Thanks, it looks like a reasonable request to me, but the issue tracker for 
python.org is located at https://github.com/python/pythondotorg/issues Please 
open a new issue there (or send a pull request)

[issue29052] Detect Windows platform 32bit/64bit automatically

2016-12-23 Thread Karsten Tinnefeld

New submission from Karsten Tinnefeld:

When navigating https://www.python.org/ with a browser, in the main menu 
fly-out Downloads/Download for Windows it suggests to download the 32 bit 
version of the current 2.x and 3.x releases (leaving out the information that 
the buttons provide 32 bit binaries).

Further, https://www.python.org/downloads/ repeats this pattern in its header 
area "Download the latest version for Windows".

May I suggest that, depending on the User-Agent header, the menu offers 64 bit 
versions of the interpreter and tools package by default in case the browser 
suggests it is running on a 64 bit platform?

According to own tests and 
http://www.useragentstring.com/pages/useragentstring.php, this should be 
possible with a regexp like '(WOW|x)64' on at least IE, FF, Chrome and Edge.
