[Python-Dev] Snake farm
Sat, 02 Nov 2002 18:51:01 -0500
As some of you may have noticed, I recently checked in a bunch of
fixes that deal with portability. I have been granted access to the
snake farm, which allows me to test python on different architectures.
The snake farm architectures include:
AIX 4.2 & 4.3
Linux 2.4 & 2.2/Alpha
I am mostly testing 2.3, but can test 2.2 as well.
Right now, there is no easy way to tell if a bug on SF is specific to
a particular OS/architecture. There are already Macintosh and Windows
categories, perhaps a UNIX category should be added? In the meantime,
feel free to assign UNIX platform specific problems to me. I know
there are some FreeBSD problems. There is a FreeBSD machine in the SF
compile farm (ssh to compile.sf.net). Just in case someone wants to
try to fix the FreeBSD bugs. :-)
