Re: [Python-Dev] Python 2.5.3: call for patches

Martin v. Löwis schrieb:
Within a few weeks, we will release Python 2.5.3. This will be the last
bug fix release of Python 2.5, afterwards, future releases of 2.5 will
only include security fixes, and no binaries (for Windows or OSX) will
be provided anymore (from python.org).

In principle, the release will include all changes that are already on
the release25-maint branch in subversion [1]. If you think that specific
changes should be considered, please create an issue in the bug tracker
[2], and label it with the 2.5.3 version. Backports of changes that
are already released in Python 2.6 but may apply to 2.5 are of
particular interest.
I would like to apply fixes for some CVE's which are addressed in 2.5 but not
yet in 2.4. this would include

CVE-2007-4965
CVE-2008-1679
CVE-2008-1721
CVE-2008-2315
CVE-2008-3144
CVE-2008-1887
CVE-2008-4864

I was wondering if there is a current implementation or plan to implement the wait4 function (BSD style) into Python. If not, how do I go about requesting consideration for inclusion in the future?
