I have a need for a timeout feature in some of the subprocess.Popen methods.
I looked around and found this bug

As it seems it the activity on the issue just stopped.

I would like to take the reins on the issue and tie the loose ends. The current state is "test needed".
If it is updated, what tests are missing for it to qualify?

What other comments do you have on the subject?
