Currently, [[http://virtualenv.org|virtualenv]] is a separate application, allowing virtualization of Python installations. For Python 3.3, a built-in mechanism is being developed. The objective of this project is to come up with a test suite for this virtualization mechanism. Currently, [[http://virtualenv.org|virtualenv]] is a separate application, allowing virtualization of Python installations. For Python 3.3, a built-in mechanism is being developed.

Possible GSoC projects:

 * [[https://bitbucket.org/carljm/cpythonv/issue/8/add-test-suite|Creating a test suite]] for this virtualization mechanism.

 * Building [[https://bitbucket.org/carljm/cpythonv/issue/7/add-virtualizepy-to-standard-library|the standard-library module]] that will actually create virtual environments, by copying or symlinking the python binary to a given location and placing a default virtualization config file near it.
