We have green buildbots, yay! Thanks everyone for that.
However, we still have three release blocker issues that I am not
3088 test_multiprocessing hangs intermittently on POSIX platforms
3375 _multiprocessing.so build problems
874900 threading module can deadlock after fork
My biggest concern is 3375 and 3088, the latter has a dependency on
3375 is very strange since a subsequent 'make' completes just fine.
This issue happens for me on both OS X 10.5 and Ubuntu 8.04 for py3k.
3088 does not appear to be happening now on OS X or Ubuntu, but the
issue (and its dependent issue) are not closed, so I'm not sure
exactly what's going on here.
So we'll give these releases another 24 hours. Please, if you have
time see what you can do about resolving these three blockers. Chat
with me on #python-dev if you think we should release anyway. I will
try to look into 3375, but I'd like to know if anybody else is seeing
these build failures.
I'll note that I plan to hold the beta3 releases until all release
blocker and deferred blockers are resolved.
