[Python-Dev] Using Python on a fork-less POSIX-like OS


Supporting a new platform requires a lot work. It would be more reasonable
for you to first try to get a good support of the master branch before
start thinking how to support Python versions.

Python 2.7 in 2018? Really? Tick tock:

http://python3statement.org/

Usually, we don't support new platforms in CPython without strong support
of a core developer. See the PEP 11 for more conditions like buildbot
requirement. I suggest you to start working on a fork of CPython and
maintain your changes in a branch. Git rebase makes it easy.

whenever possible instead of fork+exec, since it's faster and it can be
safer on some platforms. Pablo Salgado is your guy for that.
