Well, I wasn't aware of this bug but I read the commentaries. It seems like
people share different view on whether it's critical, should be applied to
Python 2.5 or 2.4 and older etc...
This is in my opinion why it's still open. And remember that if someone
marks a bug fixed, somebody else can reopen it.
This shouldn't prevent you from using Python though.
>2. Is Python 2.5 still developed?
Python is an always moving project. Python 2.6 and the coming Python 3
will change many things. If you happen to have the book 'Learning Python',
there is a list of all these changes. These changes are usually requested
But it makes no sense to start learning Python 3 at this moment. You can
code scripts in Python 2.5 that will not break; you just have to avoid things
that will be deprecated.
>3. Is this good mailing list for such questions?
