Sure-



According to the discussion here:

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=mailman.1055808030.15325.python-list%40python.org&rnum=1&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Dos.chmod%2Bgroup:comp.lang.python.*%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26group%3Dcomp.lang.python.*%26selm%3Dmailman.1055808030.15325.python-list%2540python.org%26rnum%3D1



there was confusion as the behavior of os.chmod() on

non-Unix platforms.  Discussion led to a recommendation for

a documentation change, which was submitted as an attachment

to the bug report located here:

http://www.python.org/sf/755617



The submitter of the bug report didn't know how to submit a

patch.  I decided to capture the documentation, add it to

the appropriate tex file, produce a patch, and submit it to sf.

Can you give the rationale for this change, for those of us

that don't know which thread you are referring to?
