ago or apply the patch that's attached.

This makes ExtensionClasses work with python 2.2.1 again.
Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-05 08:03:30 EST
This would make a good candidate for a bugfix release. Will try to release a
python 2.2.2 package in Raw Hide. I'll let you know when it's ready.
Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-25 15:02:06 EST
Can you please grab the python packages from rahide and give them a try? They
are python 2.2.2 packages.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-11-25 15:13:08 EST
Misa, where can i find them? I just looked at:

And it appears that they haven't landed yet. Maybe i'm looking at the wrong place.
Comment 5 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-25 15:39:12 EST
Oh well.

Comment 6 Need Real Name 2002-11-25 15:53:40 EST
