Python 3000 Plea for Help (View in Weblogs)

We're closing in on the first Python 3000 alpha release (promised for the end of August). I'd love help with fixing the last 11 unit tests that are still failing.

We're down to 11 failing test in the py3k-struni branch. I'd like to get this down to zero ASAP so that we can retire the old p3yk branch (yes, with typo!) and rename py3k-struni to py3k. (Update: thanks everybody who helped! We're down to zero now.)

Please help! Here's the list of failing tests:

  • test_ctypes: Recently one test started failing again, after Martin changed PyUnicode_FromStringAndSize() to use UTF8 instead of Latin1. (Update: fixed)
  • test_email, test_email_codecs, test_email_renamed: Can someone contact the email-sig and ask for help with these?
  • test_minidom: Recently started failing again; probably shallow. (Update: fixed)
  • test_sqlite: Virgin territory, probably best done by whoever wrote the code or at least someone with time to spare. (Update: someone promised to do it)
  • test_tarfile: Virgin territory again (but different owner :-). (Update: fixed)
  • test_urllib2_localnet, test_urllib2net: I think Jeremy Hylton may be close to fixing these, he's done a lot of work on urllib and httplib. (Update: one got fixed)
  • test_xml_etree_c: Virgin territory again. (Update: fixed)

There are also a few tests that only fail on CYGWIN or OSX; I won't bother listing these.

If you want to help, please refer to this wiki page:

There are also other tasks; see
