Is it still up to date? Bug has been created in 2004. I don't see Tru64 in list of available buildbots.
Do we need to care about this platform? And how to make sure what existing code works fine for that?
Or maybe we can drop support for Tru64 as well as we already does it for, say, VMS?
The ES40 I've got sitting in the corner waiting for a rainy day just died a little inside. (HP was also kind enough to donate unlimited Tru64 media/licenses a while back.) As for whether or not it should be a platform CPython cares about -- I'd argue it falls in the same boat as IRIX/MIPS: not so much. I'll be damned if Snakebite doesn't have Tru64/Alpha representation though :-)
OpenVMS is an interesting one though; it's still actively supported by HP on Itanium. I've got an Itanium earmarked marked for OpenVMS "for an even rainier day", but I wouldn't know OpenVMS is it smacked me in the head, so, not a high priority at the moment.
