[New-bugs-announce] [issue16668] Remove python3dll.vcxproj from pcbuild.sln

New submission from Trent Nelson:

As far as I can tell, the python3dll.vcxproj is bitrot and should be removed from pcbuild.sln.  It's a makefile target project that invokes ..\PC\python3.mak, which builds a target named python3.dll; however, pythoncore.vxcproj builds python34[_d].dll as a proper VS project.

(Additionally, the python3dll.vxcproj has no Debug configuration, which is what brought it to my attention in the first place.)

Christian/Martin: is this python3dll.vcxproj and resulting python3.dll still used or can it be safely removed from pcbuild.sln?
