[New-bugs-announce] [issue12452] reuse plistlib in sysconfig; deprecation process in plistlib

New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

sysconfig uses regex to parse the a .plist file (format based on XML), /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist: the plistlib module can be used instead. I rebuild my patched Python from scatch (make distclean) and I didn't notice any bootstrap issue. The platform module does already use plistlib to parse SystemVersion.plist.
=> sysconfig_plistlib.patch

I also noticed that Plist and Dict emit PendingDeprecationWarning since Python 3.1. It's maybe time to switch to DeprecationWarning? test_plistlib doesn't use these classes, and there are not documented.
=> plistlib_deprecation.patch
