 If what Albert says is true, then Zope 2.4 should REQUIRE Py 2.0 and 
 SUPPORT Py 2.1, not REQUIRE Py 2.1.

But note what he said about "odd numbered releases". 

True to form, 2.0 adds a whole load of features, and 2.1 cleans up
after 2.0. ;-)  

True, there is a 2.0.1 bugfix-only release of 2.0 due out, which puts
some of the 2.1 fixes back into 2.0, but it's probably going to be
a lot simpler just to (at least officialy) support 2.1 .  

I think this probably has a lot more to do with Python's more rapid
release schedule since moving to SourceForge, than it does to someone
at DC being unable to wait. At the older, more leisurely release 
non-schedule, 2.1 would probably have been the 2.0.1 release: at the
current pace, Python is lapping itself!

Re: [Zope] missing FCNTL.py after building Zope 2.3 on Python 1.5.2

2001-01-29 Thread Steven D. Majewski


I'm not sure exactly how the problem manifests itself in 1.5.2, but 
in 1.6  later, there are a series of platform specific directories:
Lib/plat-{XXX} where XXX is some system, and a Lib/plat-generic/. 
That's where the FCNTL and some other files live.

If your system is not among the ones included in the distribution, it
has to build those system dependent files from the regen script in 
Lib/plat-generic/. 

It should probably be considered a bug of the build/makefile system
that that step does not get done when building Python, but only on
'make install' .  If you do a 'make test' before doing 'make install',
and it's your first build on a 'generic' platorm, it will always fail
for those ( FCNTL.py, TERMIOS.py, ... ) files.

 Perhaps for the non-americans, someone can tell us why the answer to this is
 'nobody.'
 

I thought the answer was supposed to be "Grant" !
If it's "nobody" , I suppose it's because he's not technically "buried" --
he's entoumbed in a marble mausoleum.
