Hi Sébastien,

We definitely like to share our core Python patches for AIX 5.1/5.2 and other platforms. We have, in the past, submitted a few of them already in the Python bug tracker.  As not all of them have been submitted (for lack of time), I uploaded them all here for your access,

Please do send us any patches you may have for building Python 3 on AIX.
