[New-bugs-announce] [issue32407] lib2to3 doesn't work when zipped

New submission from Benjamin Peterson <benjamin at python.org>:

2to3 pokes around on the file system to find the grammar files it needs in source or pickled form. This makes it not work if lib2to3 is running from a zip file. lib2to3 should use pkgutil.get_data() instead to load grammar files.
