This makes ExtensionClasses work with python 2.2.1 again.

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-11-05 13:03:30 UTC
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 20:02:06 UTC
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 20:13:08 UTC
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 20:39:12 UTC
Oh well.


Comment 6 Need Real Name 2002-11-25 20:53:40 UTC
Yes, i just tried to compile zodb, it seems to work fine now.
