Correct me, but AFAICS there are only 186 days left until Python's MAGIC scheme overflows:
/* XXX Perhaps the magic number should be frozen and a version field added to the .pyc file header? */ /* New way to come up with the magic number: (YEAR-1995), MONTH, DAY */ #define MAGIC (60202 | ((long)'\r'<<16) | ((long)'\n'<<24))
I couldn't find this problem in the SF bug tracking system. Should I submit a new bug entry ?
