| What is the methodology for testing the updates to the Python language?
There is an expanding /test directory in the pythonx.y/Lib directory. Core
developers run these about once a day on multiple systems. People who
build their own executable should run the same. People who install a
prebuilt executable may do the same, and should if they suspect a problem
with their installation.
Application developers increasingly have their own automated test files
that they run after running /Lib/test on a new installation.
