I introduced nonbreaking spaces in Lib/os.py in a comment, because I kept Alt
Gr. key pressed to write the space after # (stupid Xorg keyboard variant!).
This change introduces a strange bug in "LANG=C ./python -m test.regrtest -v
test_imp test_trace" command.
The real bug was fixed in issue #10329, but I would like to know if it would be
possible to block a commit introducing nonbreaking spaces? A least for me :-)
Wanting to finish up the difflib issue (#2986) with my first commits, I read
(especially 2.2.2 and 2.3), loaded TortoiseSVN, and successfully did a
read-only checkout. But when I try to do the needed read-write checkout,
I get a blank plink screen and ... nothing. I tried both with
'pythondev@' and Pageant running and without both after creating a
svn.python.org profile. And ideas what to do next? Is there some step
missing from the faq?
In attempting to verify that my commit privileges are working (2.8.2), I
noticed that in order to log in with putty, or 'register' the private
key with pageant, I need a 'passphrase'. If I gave one when generating
the key, I have no memory of it and cannot find such written down after
extensive search. So if either of the above is the unmentioned missing
step, I will need for someone to replace my current public key after I
generate a new pair. Who is currently available to do so?
For once, I would like copies of helpful responses sent directly to me.
I am signed up for the digest version of this list and cannot login to
change that. Mailman will not (at the moment, at least) accept the
password that it generated for me and that it sends in the monthly

Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
