New submission from Remi Pointel <python at xiri.fr>:


/usr/tmp is not (used) on OpenBSD.

We have specific patch to do this, but I prefer to have this modification upstream.

2.5: http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/lang/python/2.5/patches/patch-Lib_tempfile_py
2.7: http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/lang/python/2.7/patches/patch-Lib_tempfile_py
3.2: http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/lang/python3/3.2/patches/patch-Lib_tempfile_py

Is it possible to add a specific location to remove /usr/tmp of the dirlist?

Attached file is the patch to do this:
