[New-bugs-announce] [issue9424] deprecate unittest.TestCase.assertEquals

New submission from Michael Foord <michael at voidspace.org.uk>:

Now that deprecations are silent by default it would be much less intrusive to deprecate unittest.TestCase.assertEqual

We have a persistent issue in the Python test suite of developers using assertEquals when we have standardised on assertEqual. In regrtest we could patch TestCase.assertEquals to raise a (hopefully helpful) error. That'll stop the blighters!
