\section{History of the software}

Python was created in the early 1990s by Guido van Rossum at Stichting
Mathematisch Centrum (CWI, see \url{http://www.cwi.nl/}) in the Netherlands
as a successor of a language called ABC.  Guido remains Python's
principal author, although it includes many contributions from others.

In 1995, Guido continued his work on Python at the Corporation for
National Research Initiatives (CNRI, see \url{http://www.cnri.reston.va.us/})
in Reston, Virginia where he released several versions of the
software.

In May 2000, Guido and the Python core development team moved to
BeOpen.com to form the BeOpen PythonLabs team.  In October of the same
year, the PythonLabs team moved to Digital Creations (now Zope
Corporation; see \url{http://www.zope.com/}).  In 2001, the Python
Software Foundation (PSF, see \url{http://www.python.org/psf/}) was
formed, a non-profit organization created specifically to own
Python-related Intellectual Property.  Zope Corporation is a
sponsoring member of the PSF.

All Python releases are Open Source (see
\url{http://www.opensource.org/} for the Open Source Definition).
Historically, most, but not all, Python releases have also been
GPL-compatible; the table below summarizes the various releases.

\begin{tablev}{c|c|c|c|c}{textrm}%
  {Release}{Derived from}{Year}{Owner}{GPL compatible?}
  \linev{0.9.0 thru 1.2}{n/a}{1991-1995}{CWI}{yes}
  \linev{1.3 thru 1.5.2}{1.2}{1995-1999}{CNRI}{yes}
  \linev{1.6}{1.5.2}{2000}{CNRI}{no}
  \linev{2.0}{1.6}{2000}{BeOpen.com}{no}
  \linev{1.6.1}{1.6}{2001}{CNRI}{no}
  \linev{2.1}{2.0+1.6.1}{2001}{PSF}{no}
  \linev{2.0.1}{2.0+1.6.1}{2001}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.1.1}{2.1+2.0.1}{2001}{PSF}{yes}

  \linev{2.1.3}{2.1.2}{2002}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.2.1}{2.2}{2002}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.2.2}{2.2.1}{2002}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.2.3}{2.2.2}{2002-2003}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.3}{2.2.2}{2002-2003}{PSF}{yes}

  \linev{2.3.2}{2.3.1}{2003}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.3.3}{2.3.2}{2003}{PSF}{yes}
  \linev{2.3.4}{2.3.3}{2004}{PSF}{yes}
\end{tablev}

\note{GPL-compatible doesn't mean that we're distributing
Python under the GPL.  All Python licenses, unlike the GPL, let you
distribute a modified version without making your changes open source.
The GPL-compatible licenses make it possible to combine Python with
other software that is released under the GPL; the others don't.}

Thanks to the many outside volunteers who have worked under Guido's
direction to make these releases possible.

 - Use binascii module to do the actual line-by-line conversion

   version is still 5 times faster, though.
 - Arguments more compliant with python standard

\label{reporting-bugs}

Python is a mature programming language which has established a
reputation for stability.  In order to maintain this reputation, the
developers would like to know of any deficiencies you find in Python
or its documentation.

Before submitting a report, you will be required to log into SourceForge;
this will make it possible for the developers to contact you
for additional information if needed.  It is not possible to submit a
bug report anonymously.

All bug reports should be submitted via the Python Bug Tracker on
SourceForge (\url{http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=5470}).  The
bug tracker offers a Web form which allows pertinent information to be
entered and submitted to the developers.

The first step in filing a report is to determine whether the problem
has already been reported.  The advantage in doing so, aside from
saving the developers time, is that you learn what has been done to
fix it; it may be that the problem has already been fixed for the next
release, or additional information is needed (in which case you are
welcome to provide it if you can!).  To do this, search the bug
database using the search box on the left side of the page.

If the problem you're reporting is not already in the bug tracker, go
back to the Python Bug Tracker
(\url{http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=5470}).  Select the
``Submit a Bug'' link at the top of the page to open the bug reporting
form.

The submission form has a number of fields.  The only fields that are
required are the ``Summary'' and ``Details'' fields.  For the summary,
enter a \emph{very} short description of the problem; less than ten
words is good.  In the Details field, describe the problem in detail,
including what you expected to happen and what did happen.  Be sure to
include the version of Python you used, whether any extension modules
were involved, and what hardware and software platform you were using
(including version information as appropriate).

The only other field that you may want to set is the ``Category''
field, which allows you to place the bug report into a broad category
(such as ``Documentation'' or ``Library'').

Each bug report will be assigned to a developer who will determine
what needs to be done to correct the problem.  You will
receive an update each time action is taken on the bug.
