[New-bugs-announce] [issue8773] mailbox module is needlessly executable

New submission from Dan Buch <daniel.buch at gmail.com>:

While running various modules with the ``-m`` flag to check for command-line behavior, I noticed that the mailbox module currently has svn:executable set.  The module contains no ``if __name__ == '__main__'`` magic and, as one would expect, nothing happens when invoking ``python3 -m mailbox``.  Because svn doesn't support an extended diff format that deals with file modes, I would just propose that somebody with commit rights do the following::

    svn propdel svn:executable Lib/mailbox.py

components: Library (Lib)
