Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora aims to showcase the latest in free and open source software - we should have the most recent release of Python 3.

Scope

Interested testers do not need special hardware. If you have a favorite Python 3 script, module, or application, please test it with Python 3.2 and verify that it still works as you expect.

My own test plan:

  • Smoketest of the interpreter
  • Run the upstream regression test suite (this is done during %check)

How To Test

User Experience

Users should not notice any difference, other than the availability of the 3.2 interpreter

Dependencies

Contingency Plan

The bulk of the work is done, and appears stable.
