New submission from Stefan Krah <stefan-usenet at bytereef.org>:
Nick's comment from #10181:
"It occurs to me that one thing that *could* be backported to early versions are some of the documentation improvements on how to correctly handle the lifecycle of fields in Py_buffer. That gets messy though because memoryview doesn't behave nicely in those versions, so we'd be violating our own guidelines.
Perhaps the relevant sections should be updated with a reference saying that the semantics have been cleaned up in 3.3, and if in doubt, try to follow the 3.3 documentation?"
