Detailed Description

Python 3.2 is the latest release of the Python 3 language. Although the core language has been frozen (to allow the non-CPython implementation of Python to "catch up" with CPython), 3.2 contains hundreds of fixes and tweaks throughout.

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

How To Test

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)

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.
