The Windows 7 buildbots are failing on test_asdl_parser, but I have no idea why – the test works for me just fine. Yury and Benjamin made the most recent changes to Python.asdl, but I have no idea what effect they would have here, or why it’s Windows only.


The WS2K3 machine needs a reboot – I pinged Trent about that months ago – and the XP one isn’t supported for 3.5.


Pending the test_asdl_parser fix, I’d also like to see AMD64 Windows 8 (http://buildbot.python.org/all/builders/AMD64%20Windows8%203.x) be promoted to stable, as it’s one of only two currently using the right compiler.

So what you seem to be saying is, the Windows buildbots provide no useful signal and should be ignored?

Is MSVS 2015 the only supported compiler for Python 3.5 on Windows?  What's the other buildbot using MSVS 2015?
