I am currently attempting to go through the entire archives of Python-ideas to make a summary of the discussions about adding a syntax for decimal literals in Python.

Mailman issues, aside, thanks for doing this!

I'd really love to see more of this, we have a lot of long winding discussions on this list that end up getting repeated on down the road.

However, it will be particularly helpful if these summaries get published somewhere folks can find them. To that end, I started this project:


As you can see, It's barely been started, but I welcome your contribution, or anyone else's. Or, if there is a better place to publish these, I'd be glad to move my stuff there. All it takes is a PR to the gitHub repo


In doing so, I encountered a weird bug which I find especially annoying since it makes me look like a spammer.

If one goes through the archives by month, from May 2010 [1] to June 2011 [2], the first post shown at the top for each and every one of these monthly treads is one I wrote on May 15, 2010 [3].  This problem is not limited to the period between May 2010 and June 2011, as other misplaced posts often appear at or near the top of monthly tread summaries.

Please note that there is no need to discuss the idea I mentioned in that old thread as it has since been implemented as a separate package.
