Whoa, not so fast. I’m not volunteering work on Solaris support ;-).
Oh sorry, I misunderstood your message :-(
That said, I’m willing to review Solaris PRs (time permitting) but cannot test if changes actually work.
"Cannot test" is the kind of problem that I'm trying to point to. I don't see how Python core developers can consider maintaining a platform if they don't have access to it.
P.S. Another platform to consider dropping is IRIX, I noticed in your PR that there’s still some support for that platform in the code base and according to wikipedia IRIX has been out of development for over 14 years (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRIX).
IRIX support has been dropped in Python 2.3 (in 2003). I removed more references to IRIX yesterday ;-) https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/5776663675b48f011d428a5874cc3c79d1d...
