[New-bugs-announce] [issue8768] The checkempty_symmetric_difference test is never called

New submission from Daniel Stutzbach <daniel at stutzbachenterprises.com>:

In test_set.py (and test_sets.py in 2.x), there's a method named "checkempty_symmetric_difference".  It should be named "test_checkempty_symmetric_difference" so that it will actually be called as a test.  It's not referenced anywhere else.

The test verifies the XOR identity: some_set == some_set ^ empty_set.

Patch against trunk attached.
