[Python-Dev] What is the workflow for announcing tier 2 platform support?


I don't think that we can say that Python supports VxWorks yet. Many PRs
are not merged yet. You are free to disrribute a modified version with your

The PEP 11 lists conditions to fully support a platform:

My summary is: all tests must pass (it's ok to skip a few), a buildbot must
run and a core dev should handle any regression.

I expect that VxWorks will better fit in the "Best Effort" category: only
fix issues when someone proposes a fix.

> Hi, Experts:
> VxWorks RTOS will release a new version at the end of June. For this new
version, we(Wind River) plan to announce the Python support officially here
(https://www.python.org/download/other/) for VxWorks as tier 2 platform.
Now my 2 questions come:
> 1.       To be qualified as tier 2 platform here
https://www.python.org/download/other/, do I need to get all test cases
pass on VxWorks RTOS? Now we have the following PRs for VxWorks. With these
PRs merged, we can get around 70% test cases PASS.

> 2.       If we reach the announcement level, what is the workflow to
update the website statements here https://www.python.org/download/other/.
The following picture shows what we want to show.
