Three messages sent in reaction to python-checkins email have not got any reply so far, so I’m resending them.
Nick, in reaction to the reprlib.recursive_repr commit:
# Can't use functools.wraps() here because of bootstrap issues
wrapper.__module__ = getattr(user_function, '__module__')
wrapper.__doc__ = getattr(user_function, '__doc__')
wrapper.__name__ = getattr(user_function, '__name__')
Perhaps add __wrapped__ as well?
(I assume that, similar to _collections before it was made a builtin, the bootstrap issue is that _functools is an extension module rather than builtin, but reprlib is needed when building the extension modules?)
Me, about a zlib-related change in Misc/NEWS:
+The :mod:`zlib` extension is built using an included copy of the zlib +sources unless the zlib version found on the system is too old to be +used for the build::
Unless or if? Building with an included copy *if* the system one is too old makes sense to me, not the contrary. Am I not seeing something?
Me, about a change to winsound.PlaySound:
+- Issue #6317: Now winsound.PlaySound only accepts unicode.
- Issue #6317: Now winsound.PlaySound can accept non ascii filename.
I think the new entry should have replaced the older: “only accepts” trumps “can accept“.
