[New-bugs-announce] [issue11206] test_readline unconditionally calls clear_history()

Georg Brandl report at bugs.python.org
Sun Feb 13 11:26:38 CET 2011

New submission from Georg Brandl <georg at python.org>:

This function apparently is not available in all readline versions; e.g. the GNU readline 5.2 currently installed on dinsdale.

This can be fixed (together with the unconditional reliance of test_distutils and test_zipfile on zlib) after 3.2 final.
