Clear message

When a new Python release nears, activity on the python-dev mailing list accelerates as people try to track down and fix bugs that have eluded previous efforts. Some of the most difficult bug fixes to test are for relatively minor platforms, because most of the people on the python-dev list have run-of-the-mill computing environments.

Here's your chance to help. If you would be able to help test Python on non-mainstream platforms, add a row to the table below. The definition of "mainstream" is obviously vague, but includes old versions various Linux distributions (e.g., Red Hat 6.2), Unix distributions which have fallen out of favor (e.g., IRIX) and any non-Unix platform other than Windows.
