Trying out safethread patch

P: n/a

I'd like to take the python-safethread code out for a spin, but I'm not sure
where to start. I downloaded the latest diff:

http://python-safethread.googlecode....bzr-36020.diff

checked out Python 3.0 from the bzr mirror, then ran patch in the typical
way. That doesn't apply cleanly at all (too much water under the bridge
since this the patch was made). I was thinking if I back up my bzr
repository to r36020, apply the patch then sync with the latest bzr revision
that might work, but I have no bzr experience. I haven't any idea how to do
that. Any suggestions?

Thx,

Yeah, the 36020 in the file name indicates the bzr revision that
matches. Going into the branch and using "bzr pull -r 36020" should
be sufficient.

However, do *not* sync with the latest upstream version after patching
- there WILL be conflicts. Dealing with a merge isn't congruent with
taking it for a spin. ;)
