[New-bugs-announce] [issue11991] test_distutils fails because of bad filename match

New submission from Piotr Husiatyński <phusiatynski at gmail.com>:

I'm using Arch Linux, which instead of compress, provides symlink to gzip (AFAIK this will be replaced with xz). Because of that, instead of .Z extension, .gz is being used to create compressed file name.

$ ./python -m test test_distutils
[1/1] test_distutils
test test_distutils failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/mnt/sda5/Projekty/cpython/Lib/distutils/tests/test_archive_util.py", line 165, in test_compress_deprecated
AssertionError: False is not true

1 test failed:

$ whereis compress

$ file /bin/compress
/bin/compress: symbolic link to `gzip'
