I have a python pull request https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/2489 
that introduces AF_VSOCK to the python C socket module.  Unfortunately 
things have gone quiet for several weeks. Since I am new to this process 
I am unclear on what to expect as the next steps. I believe I have 
addressed all issues. If I am mistaken please let me know. A real 
functioning test setup is a bit painful and I would be happy to help in 
anyway I can. The Microsoft Hyper V team is now introducing support of 
vsock in the upstream linux kernel so its adoption is spreading amongst 
the various hypervisors.

Any guidance on the basic timelines would be very helpful.
