I have a travel this weekend (4 days weekend in Madrid, until
Wednesday), but I can cancel and be available for any remaining issue. I
would need to know in the next 24-30 hours or so :).
I'm a bit worried about you restoring bsddb and be pulled-off shortly
again if I can't resolve any remaining issues in minutes :). But I would
take the risk.
PS: Something to consider, also, is that (I think), some buildbot could
crash (core dump) while running the bsddb testsuite. That would be an
issue with Berkeley DB installation, not bsddb module, undetected until
now because no code used the Berkeley DB library. Since the run would
crash with core dump, it wouldn't verify the entire python testsuite.
That would be a big issue. What can be done then, if the buildbot admins
are not available to verify library versions, provide the coredump, and so?.
