Ezio Melotti email@example.com added the comment:
Guido decided to leave the fail* methods and assertDictContainsSubset in 3.3 (and possibly even in the following versions), so that people moving from 2.7 to 3.3 don't have to change their code because these methods are missing. Since assertSameElements is not in 2.7, it can be removed in 3.3.
I will therefore backout r88451 and add back the fail* methods and assertDictContainsSubset.
