[Python-Dev] Can I submit more support of standard library for VxWorks after 3.8.0 beta1?

One main purpose of the beta period is to discover and fix bugs and 
otherwise tweek behavior in the new features included in the first beta. 
  This usually presupposes that the feature is thought to be 
'ready-to-go' as-is, absent new discoveries.

Interpretation and issuance of exceptions is usually up to the release 
manager.  For 3.8, this is Łukasz Langa,  Victor Stinner is otherwise 
most involved with platform support.

FWIW, I personally might allow 'suppport added by beta 1' to include 
failures in up to 4 modules to be fixed as bugs as soon as possible.

I think that this is an excellent idea (as in 'likely needed to meet the 
deadline').  (And no, I am not a candidate for the contract.)
