[New-bugs-announce] [issue35150] Misc/README.valgrind out-of-date

Robert Henry report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Robert Henry <rrh.henry at gmail.com>:

File Misc/README.valgrind is out of date with respect to python3.8.  There are important sections of this file that are 15 years old!

Example: the README.valgrind refers to "Uncomment Py_USING_MEMORY_DEBUGGER in Objects/obmalloc.c" but there's no such symbol in obmalloc.c (There is in Python/dtoa.c)

I have no idea if the valgrind suppression file Misc/valgrind-python.supp is up to date, but it bears examination by an expert.
