[Python-Dev] Is it useful to update cgitb module?

Extremely useful ? for CGI scripts.  Now, my sample size is quite small ? mainly the #python irc channel on freenode, but I have been informally asking for a few years, and you are the first person I have encountered who admitted to writing and maintaining new CGI based sites.  I still say the value of supporting such an obsolete model is? questionable.


That said, I have no power to block commits.

Are there people still actively developing new cgi scripts in python?  I know some modern HTTPDs don?t even support classic cgi without some kind of fastcgi daemon in between.  I am aware that some parts of various wsgi tools use the cgi module, but is the cgitb module useful for them?

Yes. I have several web sites and applications built as Python CGI scripts.  cgitb is extremely useful.
