New submission from Oren Held email@example.com:
In the "what's new in 2.7", there is some mistake in the description of issue 7902.
7902, afaik, disables the fallback to absolute import, when requesting a relative import fails. If I got it right, the description states the opposite.

Hello, the patch seems indeed to fix a "reverse" description of issue 7902. Was there a reason (given the quite long list of nosy people) why it was not applied? "lack of time" doesn't count :)
