South in Python 2.3

Did a backport of south v0.7 to work with python 2.3, here is the result. Made the south tests and out of 58 it failed 5, tested on my application and seems to be working correctly.

Best regards.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

That's an impressive amount of work you've put in the patch, but I'm going to have to WONTFIX this, since I never have, and never will, support Python 2.3.

Some of the fixes in there are trivial, but some are pretty major changes, and you've had to add deques wholesale. Django itself will be dropping support for 2.3 in the next version, no distribution currently ships with it (even RHEL moved off of it a couple of years back), and 2.4 adds a hell of a lot of nice syntactic sugar. Nobody's ever significantly complained about the lack, either.

I don't have the resources to keep up testing on 2.3, so I'm afraid this is WONTFIX. Someone else is more than welcome to keep track.

I agree with your WONTFIX, i will be keeping sometrack and updates if needed until my project drops python2.3 and starts using a more recent version, which isn't far.

Best regards.
