[Python-Dev] Need help with urllib/urllib2 (SF bug 549151)

Looking at my outstanding SF bugs/patches, I came across
python.org/sf/549151 . John J Lee has given a good summary of what
needs to be done, but I don't have time for it. Is there anyone else
who can do this:
> 1. Apply Guido's patch for urllib.py: guido.txt. The docs are
> already correct.
> 2. 301 in response to POST is still not redirected in urllib2.
> urllib2.py.patch3 fixes that (note patch3, not patch2). It also
> removes my Request.get_method method (which now seems like
> overkill, as well as breaking the URL scheme-independence of
> Request). Also fixes an exception message.
Please make this the priority.
> 3. liburllib2.tex.patch2 updates the docs to reflect the changes
> in urllib2.py.patch3, rephrases a note and adds a missing method
> 4. liburllib.tex.patch2: trivial rewording of docs for clarity.
Doc updates are easy.
> 5. Backport above changes to 2.2 bugfix branch.
This can be put off. :-)
