About the Core Workflow category

A place to talk about CPython core development workflow and related infrastructure.

This includes changes to the roundup interface and functionality, rietveld, mercurial, buildbots, and any other infrastructure we may add. It also includes discussing how we use these tools, and most importantly how we use these tools to integrate the community beyond the core developers into the workflow that gets patches committed to the python repository. This means that it also includes discussions of the process of bringing in new contributors, including how we use the core-mentorship list, as well as how we organize ticket triage, and how we make use of external resources such as openhatch. Discussions of documentation and how we organize and maintain the documentation are also appropriate.
