So far I've had exactly four reservations for the Language Summit at
EuroPython 2012. One of them is Guido--but he's threatening to skip it
if we don't get more people and just go to the sprints.
Also, honestly I have next-to-nothing on the docket. At this point
we've just hit feature freeze for Python 3.3--or at least that's what
people tell me. In general, anyone who wanted to get a language change
in have already either just succeeded or just failed. So after a flurry
of activity I feel like we've hit a quiet period. I mean, the trunk for
3.4 won't even be open for a month or two.
So: if you're a core developer, and you're interested in attending the
Language Summit in Florence on Saturday, please email me your RSVP.
Also, if you have suggestions for things we should discuss, send those
along too. Please send all these emails directly to me, *off-list*,
tonight or Thursday.
I'll send another email on Friday morning decreeing the fate of the
p.s. I'm assured the room we'd have for the Language Summit has
excellent air conditioning.
It seems that our memory estimation of what the hg machine would need
was wildly incorrect, causing an OOM Linux crash within one hour.
We'll look into fixing this; expect occasional 15 min outages for a
few days for reboots. If the outage is longer, it means it crashed
again :-( I'll report if we found something that can be considered a
We (primarily Antoine) just migrated hg.python.org to OSU/OSL.
Everything should continue to work as it did before, except that the
IP address of the machine has now changed.
If there are any issues, please let us know.
