Found a python bug while debugging a piece of misbehaving code on raspberry pi:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -a; python3 --version
Linux raspberrypi 5.10.17-v7+ #1403 SMP Mon Feb 22 11:29:51 GMT 2021 armv7l GNU/Linux
Quick search through python bugs confirms the issue:
Being a vocal python promoter and seeing a problem that has been around for almost five years without having been addressed piqued my curiosity. What is the process for determining the severity/priority of a reported problem, and who and how decides whether or not a problem should be fixed?
