Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com> added the comment:

Committed a port to python3 for os-getgroups-v3.patch in r83088,
including test cases (contrary to what I wrote before). 

3.1: r83093

I'll backport to 2.7 and 2.6 tomorrow.

To complete the documentation for picking this patch: I've spoken with an Apple engineer about this issue. He says the the _DARWIN_C_SOURCE behavior is intentional and will not be reverted.  Apple's build of python, and other system tools (including perl) also use the _DARWIN_C_SOURCE behavior.

resolution:  -> accepted
versions:  -Python 3.1, Python 3.2
