[New-bugs-announce] [issue24206] Issues with equality of inspect objects

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

There are issues with implementations of equality in inspect classes.

1. __eq__ doesn't return NotImplemented. This causes that testing for equality with an instance of different classes always returns False, even when other class implements __eq__ that handles inspect class.

2. __ne__ returns False if __eq__ returns NotImplemented (in subclass).

3. All tests test only one of "==" or "!=" operations.

Proposed patch fixes these issues.
