[New-bugs-announce] [issue23774] Test failures when unable to write to install location

Steve Dower report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Steve Dower:

The following tests fail when run in an all-users installation because they cannot write to the install directory:

test_compileall test_tcl test_tools test_zipfile

See the attached file for traces.

>From Ned Deily:
Regarding tests trying to write into the install directory tree, I'm pretty sure that there have been fixes added for those but I can't recall off the top of my head specific examples.  I think the best approach is to use a temporary, writable directory instead; if that's not practical, then the test case should be skipped.  I support fixing any tests that still currently fail due to this.
