While trying to clone a cpython repo to a new repo. I am getting this error.
abort: data/Lib/idlelib/idle_test/@README.txt.i@7573717b9e6f: no match
Is something wrong with the repo?
I updated my clone today morning
[cpython]$ hg pull
running ssh hg(a)hg.python.org 'hg -R cpython serve --stdio'

Issue #18025: Fixed a segfault in io.BufferedIOBase.readinto() when raw
stream's read() returns more bytes than requested.
I was trying to do a simple merge of a doc change between 3.3 and
default and the usual Misc/NEWS conflict came up. But when I looked at
the diff it was massive! Turns out that Misc/NEWS in default goes from
3.3.1rc1 to 3.4.0a1
Misc/NEWS in 3.3 goes properly through all versions between 3.3.1rc1
to 3.3.3rc1 (http://hg.python.org/cpython/file/3c4a5dc29417/Misc/NEWS).
I have to get to work so I don't have time to fix this, but if someone
does have the time to unwind this mix-up that has accumulated that
would be great. And maybe it's finally time to bite the bullet and
come up with some way to automatically generate Misc/NEWS from commit
I was recently added as a core-dev (yes, saying it still makes me smile ;).
Python is an awesome language and I am happy to be a part of it.
Minor history: I authored PEP 409 (raise ... from None), and authored most of the reference implementation for Enums
(PEP 435). I've been programming for a couple decades in languages ranging from x86 assembly to AS/400 CL (yeah, not
really a language :( ) to Visual Foxpro, and I'm acquanted with several others. Once I started using Python, however,
my desire to spend any valuable free programming time on other languages just died. Although I still need to get better
at C (for Python!).
This is the first time I've really had the chance to work with a team, and I'm happy to say it has been productive,
educational, and enlightening.
I'd like to propose to grant Ethan Furman commit rights. He's authored PEP
309, has been very helpful in the Enum saga (and is the de-facto author of
the current reference implementation), and has also been active on the
tracker for a couple of years (username stoneleaf). I think he has already
signed the contributor agreement, and explicitly expressed interest to
contribute directly to PEP 435.
