All Things Pythonic
Python 3000 Plea for Help
by Guido van van Rossum
August 7, 2007
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:

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

About the Blogger

Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major programming languages on and off the web. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit. He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. They then moved to Silicon Valley where Guido now works for Google (spending 50% of his time on Python!).
